The depth of the minimum of an eclipsing variable star is 1m. What is the minimum – main or secondary?

Main. This depth of the minimum means that a system of two stars loses more than half of its total light (since the attenuation occurs by a factor of 2.512), which means that a star with a higher surface brightness is eclipsed at this minimum.
