    Right click and look at the page source.

    Look at the code and if it's a WP site it should have some code like this

    <link rel='stylesheet' id='dashicons-css' href='http://uprootonline.com/wp-includes/css/dashicons.min.css?ver=4.7.4' type='text/css' media='all' />
    <link rel='stylesheet' id='admin-bar-css' href='http://uprootonline.com/wp-includes/css/admin-bar.min.css?ver=4.7.4' type='text/css' media='all' />

    If thw site owner has not changed the login page to a custom url (most dont do), you can just type domainname.com/wp-login.php or domainne.com/wp-admin. If you get a login page, it is built with wordpress.

    Another method is to check the page source. If you see any urls with

    wp-something/something....
    or
    something/wp-..../something

    in the page source, it is a wordpress website

    I'd say CMS because they use php

    for static site you hardcode html, for dynamic content you use php that pulls content from a database.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but that's what I would think
