type of counter configuration.

**A. ** 3

**B. ** 4

**C. ** 5

**D. ** 6

**Answer : ****Option C**

**Explaination / Solution: **

If all the flip-flops were reset to 0 at power on, what is the total number of
distinct outputs (states) represented by PQR generated by the counter?

So Total number of distinct outputs is 4
