As far as I can tell, utilities version is equal to database version. So, if you connect to the database using SQL*Plus:
M:\>sqlplus scott/tiger@ora10

SQL*Plus: Release 11.2.0.2.0 Production on ╚et Vel 23 08:51:56 2012       --> SQL*Plus (client) version

This is how I read it:

A database is 10.2.0.4.0.

You connected to it (using command prompt on your computer) using SQL*Plus version 10.2.0.1.0.

Your EXP version (on your computer) is 10.2.0.1.0 as well. This is not EXP version on a database server, but on your own PC. You do have EXP utility installed on your PC, don't you?

If you want to use EXP HELP=Y for a server's EXP version, you need to issue that statement on a server (not from your PC).

P.S. Forgot to mention: there's no problem in having more than a single Oracle product installed on a computer. For example, you could have Oracle 11g XE database (so that you can play with Apex), Oracle 10g Client (with utilities), Oracle 9i Client, etc.

Which one is used when you run EXP HELP=Y? The one that is first found in the PATH. If you want to use, for example, 9i EXP, change current directory to 9i's BIN directory (or include the whole path).
