In brief: All of the above

Or none of them. There is nothing specific about the symptoms of pneumonia or, for that matter, nearly every other disease your doc has to diagnose and treat.
Symptoms are common to many different disease and have to be viewed in context. Rarely, pneumonia can cause no symptoms, and only be seen on a cxr. Most will have some fever and cough.
