Electric pins within Nikon F mount

Sort of beginners question: While most lenses for Nikon F mount do have 10 pins, what is specifically missing if the pin count is less than 10?

As seen on review of 18-55 VR on dpreview: This one has only 7 pins, albeit it is a "G" and "DX" lens. What is missing here?

As seen on my own copy of a 1.8/50 "D" lens: Only five pins.

Just to understand how things work: Is there an overview which data are exchanged between body and lens over which electricals pins?
