I am not a Fedora user, and I don't immediately know, but this question looks to have a similarity to a homework question.

What exactly did you mean to convey by 'primary filesystem type' as there are several filesystem types that can be selected?

I presume "primary" means "what the installer will give you if left to its own devices". And the answer to that is in the release notes or FAQ on the distro's website.

So you are saying that you think the question concerns defaults and not primary partitions?

Run these commands to know your filesystem:

cat /proc/filesystems
mount | grep ext
