Which one of the following is grammatically correct?

Two types, one is [type 1] and one is [type 2]

OR

Two types, one is [type 1] and other is [type 2]

To me the second one sounds correct but I am not sure about the first one.

Example :

  1. There are two types of relationships. One is needs based and other is love based.
  2. There are two types of caches. One is Write-through cache and one is Write-back cache.

  • Neither of these is a complete sentence, so it's hard to say what is correct or not. Can you give us an entire sentence that you want to use these in?

You must use the with other:

There are two types of relationship. One is needs-based and the other is love-based.

This is perfectly fine:

There are two types of relationship. One is needs-based and one is love-based.

You don't actually need either structure. There is an old joke which goes:

There are 10 kinds of people in the word: those who understand binary and those who don't.

(I chose to hypenate "needs-based" but this is a personal style choice.)
