Hi Kedar,

Backspin and underspin are the same.  However if you imagine the ball as a clock face the topspin you can imagine the ball rolling straight forward over 12 o'clock.  The backspin the ball roll straight backwards over 6 o'clock.  The two sidespin are spinning over 3 and 9 o'clock.  However there are an infinite number of other points around the clock that the ball can spin.  So really there are an unlimited number of types of spin that you can generate. 

You can also take a look at the tutorial on Learning To Spin.
