Wiki is your friend.
1. Partioning
2. File systems
3. inodes
Try using wiki yourself for future questions of this type.

you can start with the wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disk_partitioning, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Partition_types and also you can check your filesystems here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_file_systems
