  Is there a way to query a variable as to whether it is a mpz_t, a mpf_t, a
  mpq_t, or a mpfr_t ?

Not sure I understand your quesion.

As I assume you know, the C languages doesn't have anything like
that.  The type isn't saved in each variable of the type.

If you hae debugging enabled, type information exists in the
executable.  But there is not portable way to access it.
