Where the authors of your chart (unfairly) lumped together SPECIFIC manuscripts on one side of their equation (Alexandrinus, Sinaiticus, Vaticanus) they only offered an ASSERTION on the other side of their equation ("ORIGINAL N.T. Manuscripts 30-90 A.D.")

They cited nothing, but only offered an assertion, because nobody has the manuscripts they refer to. They are making a CLAIM for the origination of the manuscripts which gave us the King James Version, and that claim has no true provenance.

In other words, they are full of shit. The chart is propaganda.

Mark's answer is good. As I tried to relate in "What is the Bible?", my "Bible" is a stack of books.

A random page scanned from my copy of the Nestle-Aland Novum Testamentum Graece, just so people can see what it looks like:
