Did you read the instructions to the form? A12 is the code. Please see below.

(a)(12) is the category for people who have already been granted TPS. (c)(19) is for people who don't yet have a granted TPS request. If this is your first time filing, you would put (c)(19), because you do not yet have TPS status granted.
All answers given are intended to be general guidance and do not constitute legal advice. These answers do not create any attorney-client relationship with the question's author.
(c)19 is the category you select, since this is your first time applying for TPS
