  A) National Television System Committee (61%)
  B) NBC Technology for Standardization of Color (2%)
  C) Network Transmission Standard for Color (35%)
  D) Ninth Television Standards Congress (2%)

Although a common modern wording is "National Television Standards Committee", that meaning is completely incorrect. Period references (1954 Better Homes & Gardens; 1962 Encyclopaedia Britannica Vol. 21, Pg. 911) clearly show the proper definition as being "National Television System Committee".
