It should be KSysGuard instead of the Systemmonitor application opened with CTRL + Esc keys. (Systemmonitor and KSysGuard are installed on the system together. Systemmonitor needs to be deleted)
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Press CTRL + Esc Systemmonitor will open
2. Click Application Menu, System, KSysGuard
There are two applications that do the same job
KSysGuard, which is more useful and more comprehensive than two applications that do the same job (Systemmonitor and KSysGuard), should be the default
Operating System: KDE neon 5.18
KDE Plasma Version: 5.18.1
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.67.0

OS Type: 64-bit
Processors: 12 × AMD Ryzen 5 1600 Six-Core Processor
Memory: 15,6 GiB of RAM
I agree, this is a but odd. Why not just open the whole thing?
It doesn't make much sense to have two apps with the same functionality.
I second that. CTRL + ESC should open System Monitor (ksysguard). Don't see any reason to have System Activity since System Monitor offers the same and more.
The Ctrl+Esc process list is a bit lighter than ksysguard. Also, it always opens with the process list, whereas ksysguard remembers the active tab and opens there. When you need to kill a process, every second can count.
With ksysguard itself is in the process of being replaced, the situation has to be re-evaluated. It is possible that the replacement really obsoletes both ksysguard as well as the process list.
Regarding comment 3, feel free to reassign your hotkeys.

Thanks, good idea. Although my comment was more two the point of having two different apps for more or less the same task. That's confusing and unnecessary, especially for new users.

Interesting. Is a replacement already in development?
Yes, see https://quantumproductions.info/articles/2020-2020-11/plasma-system-monitor-preview-release
Although Plasma System Monitor is the default system monitoring application with Plasma 5.22 version, System Activity application continues to work with Ctrl+Esc.
So there are two system monitoring in the system. Also, Plasma System Monitor, such as KSysGuard, cannot be run from the Tools drop-down menu of the System Activity applet. Because there isn't. Removed KSysGuard was able to work with System Activity at least.
I think Plasma System Monitor should be KDE's only system monitoring application and should work with an easy shortcut (Ctrl+Esc).
