Default Plaster or sheetrock and asbesdos?

Ow do I know I'd the house is Sheetrock or plaster? The current owners have lived there for five years and Rey said they don't know, which seems hard to believe... The basement has lath and plaster showing in the basement on one of the walls and the rest of the walls in basement are concrete block. The house was built in 1941. I'm afraid with te age of the house that the house does have asbesdos and is plaster/lath...

Does anyone have solutions to many problems
