That's a poor partitioning scheme, because all primary partitions
are occupied, and the free space could only be used to grow /.
Alternatively, if the extended partition contains no logical
partitions other than swap, you could
 - disable swap,
 - remove the swap partition,
 - remove the extended partition,
 - recreate it at the start of the free space,
 - recreate swap,
 - create an additional logical 5G partition.
And then you could either use the logical partition for
a filesystem to be mounted somewhere below your /home where
you need more space. [Or you use LVM (with two physical volumes
building a volume group from which to allocate space for a new
/home as a logical volume).]
