HELP: Plumbing basics

Hello, I hope some of you can help me. I'm an interior design student at university and, wanting to be a more hands on designer, have also taken a plumbing module. My assignment needs me to research some common market trends in the UK (assigment is on new trends like wall hung toilets in bathrooms)

I need to know:
Fresh water connection: Majority side or bottom
Where is the drainage located: Floor or wall
If floor, what is the distance from the middle of the floor drainage to the wall

Haven't been able to find an answer online and so was hoping to get a sample of 10 professionals

Can anyone help me please?

Thank you

Here is a link to a spec sheet on Toto brand wall hung unit, maybe this will help.

That's great, but as a wall hung toilet won't that just tell me the spec for that particular toto toilet? really i wanted some general opinion on pipework, i.e. in old houses (obviously without wall hung) the connection is through the floor but in new housing it's out through the wall?
