This is a scene with three different particles created using each rand method.
It should give you a nice visual for a basic idea of these rand functions.
You should take a look at the entries for these functions in Maya Help > Mel Command Reference. It gives examples and notes usage options...such as multiple streams and adding a radius to the sphrand function.
Anyway it is a start at least;
BTW this is a Maya 2009 file
