MSDN forum: rows in system table syssubscriptions in Publisher

Backgroud, the replicated database has 7 publications (3 transactional + 4 merge). And all subscriptions are in mode of 'pull'

execute "Select * from syssubscriptions " in this replicated database, I found an interesting but confusing result. Each subscriber has 10 rows, which deviates from what I should have expected. I used to think it should be 11 rows (4*2 each merge replication has 2 rows in corresponding+ 3 for transactional)

Can anyone with rich experience in this area explain what is actually going on here for me?
Thanks in advance
