My 200 six has an air cleaner with a snorkel, with no tube for a hose. I have seen others with a small tube like so:

then there are ones that look like this

and then this one that looks it may not even have a snorkel, but perhaps its just missing it:

Ok well my question is, why so many different ones within only a couple of years? Which ones go with which engine?

What kind of engine do you have, and what kind of air cleaner do you have?

I believe those are all the same and are for a 289 V8 not a 200 I6. The last one is missing the horn but other than that I believe they are all same and correct for a 289.

Emmission standards, engineering changes/advancements along with other factors brought changes. Engines delievered to different states could ahve different air cleaners in some applications

I believe all the ones you linked to are for the v-8.
There were different emission control packages for different states. The second link shows a second tube
attached to the intake horn, that attached to the heat riser pipe off the exhaust manifold to pump warm air into the intake for cold start/ run( emissions thing).The bottom plate holes are sized for a 2bbl/4bbl carb and are too large for your 1bbl-1100 carb.
