That's correct. The alto (like the baritone)is in E flat which means the written C sounds Eb. Soprano & tenor are in B flat - so written C sounds B flat.

Thank you. When I play G it is Bb however when I play c it reads as E not Eb. I checked all pads no leaks. It is a cheap saxophone so that could be the issue. Or is it possible its my emboucher? I am going to get a teacher next month just couldnt afford on this month.
