material design

While reading material design, i found that i didn't know the difference between primary and secondary actions. I think it's too basic, I can't find any information about it. What is the difference between them especially in check boxes? and can i get some example about it..?

about image / 1 is about secondary actions and 2 is about primary actions

    Could you give us the link to the page where these images are from and where it is said that these are primary/secondary actions. – locationunknown Nov 10 '18 at 13:21

    WIthout a source, I can ONLY SPECULATE: Place the checkbox in front of the item if selection of items (=checking the checkbox) is the main (=primary) action. Place the checkbox after the item if the list of items is mainly for something else, and the checkbox supports a secondary function. – virtualnobi Nov 10 '18 at 18:15
