14 actually if the relevant number is places that provide homes for
filesystems. Count is from 0-15, of which one of 1-4 is the extended,
which can not contain a filesystem, and 0 is the whole physical
device.

Exactly.

Number 0 represents the whole disk. One is lost to the extend container partition (sda4 in Bob's case), so the maximun is 14 usable partitions, and all primaries have to be used (contrary to the typical usage of using 1 primary, 1 extended, the rest logical).

never mind)

He has a lot of free space and only three partitions available more to make.
