You are in essence asking how many different types of clutches there are. Now, clutches are classified as: single plate or dry type frictional clutches, and multiplate or oil immersed clutches. Single plate clutches are typically used in larger transmissions like in buses and trucks, while multiplate clutches are used in smaller cars.
