Hmm I'm not sure well I'd say:
Close friends - 1/2
Friends I talk to a lot (but maybe not close) - 5
Then I have 3 friends from school but I only see them when we're going out clubbin' .
I have many acquaintances.
I hang with about 10 people in college but I'm only close to certain people in the group.
i usually take time when getting to know someone it can take a longer or shorter time depending on the person and I'm quite introverted . I open up to everyone only certain people but thats the way I prefer it I'm not the type of person who would express many things, I rarely bring up personal conversations either.

Acquaintances: I don't know, :/ lots.
People who confide in me: 7
People whom I confide to/True friends/ People I can slug it out with and share a cuppa with at the end of the day: 3.
Having acquaintances is good,as it means you have people to go round with on doing boring activities like getting your phone fixed. Or having those big team games like basketball.
But I think having true friends is something I don't want to forsake- the reason people have only about 1-4 true close friends on average is because these guys are the ones you truly care about. Like, truly, because you're not gonna go around and call 50 people your 'special-est' friends. (generalisation of -est but that doesn't matter here.)
And perfectly happy with my true friends too, because I can just be myself around them. No watching my words or my humor, no restricting my teasing, no being conservative with my actions, no tensing up, no worries of being judged...

I consider myself to have 0 friends. But there are a few people who wouldn't leave me the hell alone. Some of us just rather being alone and I dont understand why most people seem to have a problem with that.
