How can I find out which of the above partitions is my linux distribution installed on?

Note: I'm running Ubuntu and I installed it with Wubi. I did read this topic but the answers don't seem so clear.

WUBI ... installs the software on an existing Windows partition, thus without need for partitioning. ... Ubuntu is installed within a file in the Windows file system (c:\ubuntu\disks\root.disk), ... Wubi also creates a swap file in the Windows file system (c:\ubuntu\disks\swap.disk),
