Question #6 refers to copper, not fiber. Look at your patch panels and count how many jacks you have available.

Question #7 assumes that you have fiber between the 2 locations. Look at your fiber patch panel and see how many spare pairs you have. also open up the patch panel and look behind it to see if there are any unterminated strands. Count them if they exist.

Question #8. You may have to ask whomever installed it, or get someone with an OTDR to measure it for you, or else you can estimate.

Usually it's IDF and MDF for Intermediate Distribution Facility and Main Distribution Facility. Maybe they've replaced "Facility" with "Room."
