I am a beginner to fedora and recently installed fedora20 on my windows7 laptop. As i checked on automatic partitioning, it created 6 partitions that includes existing 2 partitions on windows7. I could see free space left is 250GB on my hard disk. I would like to use this free space in extending the current partitions (in particular one).

Could you give us some more information? In particular, the output of parted -l, vgdisplay -C and lvdisplay -C, all issued as root.

Offtopic but important: Fedora 20 is End-of-Life since mid 2015 and not supported with (important security) updates. Software repositories have been moved to the archive - you won't be able to install packages from official repos without modifying your repo files.

Please consider upgrading or reinstalling to a supported release of Fedora Linux, currently F23 and F24.
