I assume by backfill, you mean a granular material like gravel - correct?  That is not a floor, it is a material.  When you create your floor family, you can add a "backfill' layer like gravel and assign it the proper material from your material library.

Like WWHub said, I think you will have to create a floor called "back fill" and set up the properties.  If you are taking a course and they supplied the file, I would think the floor would all ready be in the file.

Hmm maybe, but the above image has several types (I don't know what's the right word) of floor, like rc 400mm and so on , similarly under columns family you are supposed to have different types of columns,but for me I only have I-beams( w_beams) under the scroll menu ,how do I load all the different types of families into,say floor,column etc? I tried using insert,load family ,it still somehow does not display other types under the drop down menu? . I also have specified the /places/libraries in the options/file location menu.

What is it that am doing wrong? and any help is appreciated.

Revit does not come with multiple floor, wall or roof types.  The user needs to create those based on his project and construction technology where he works.  The image you show was created by either the instructor or whoever started the project he was using. 

 

Typically, offices will set up project templates that may contain some of the wall, floor or roof types they will use.  But you do not have to do that because you can copy family types from an existing project into your project.

 

You still have items to learn so start here by creating your own floor type.  Here is a video that shows how to do this but you will be creating a different type than what is shown.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cxoywXh-Ldg

 

Regarding your multiple posts.  Do not back-up and refresh your previous post.
