what is CTS?

.Net framework supports multiple languages, and different language defines their primitives' data types in different formats.
C# defines and integer variable
Where as VB.Net defines an integer variable
Dim i as integer
Microsoft tries to convert these data types into a generic data types. So that different codes written in different languages code are converted into language independent code, due to this CTS is created.CTS contain different data type's specification to be used in our code. For example: the primitives' integer data type is known as Int32, in CTS. All data types are derived from object data types from which the value types and reference types are defined.

CTS: Common Type System, In order that two language communicate smoothly CLR has CTS
In VB you have "Integer" and in C++ you have "long" these datatypes are not compatible so the
interfacing between them is very complicated. In order to able that two different languages can communicate Microsoft introduced Common Type System. So "Integer" datatype in VB6 and
"int" datatype in C++ will convert it to System.int32 which is datatype of CTS. CLS which is
covered in the coming question is subset of CTS.

CTS = Common Type System. This is the range of types that the .NET runtime understands, and therefore that .NET applications can use. However note that not all .NET languages will support all the types in the CTS. The CTS is a superset of the CLS.
