=>cls stands for common language specification where as
cts stands for common type system.
=>CLS : cls is a standard for .net . cls is small set of specification to make all languages as a .net compliant languages. cls make a use of cts and clr. if my languages (c#,,j#,vc++) wants to be compliant language it has to follow cls standard.

=>CTS : Common Type System is also a standard like cls. If two languages (c# or or j# or vc++) wants to communicate with eachother, they have to convert into some common type (i.e in clr common language runtime). In c# we use int which is converted to Int32 of CLR to communicate with which uses Integer or vice versa

Common Language Specification is a set of constructs and constraints that serves as a guide for library writers and compiler writers. The Common Language Specification is subset of the Common Type System(CTS).

The Common Type System defines how types are declared, used, and managed in the runtime, and is also an important part of the runtime's support for cross-language integration.

CLS means common language specification which says that all .net languages(c# or or when compiled has to generate the same type of IL code when targeting the .net framework.
CTS means common type system which says that all the data types present in various .net languages should adopt the same data,while converting code to,integer of is shown as int32 to c# by Intermediate language(IL).

(why comman rules?)=improving conversion capabulity to an applicaion or program or language by internolly only.
cts:by using any lang,if we want declare variable(i) as 10,needs different structures as per the lang rules& structure,but here 1 common format internolly understood by .net f/w is cts available in diff modes...int16,int32
