##### Gate2007_36

The control signal functions of a 4-bit binary counter are given below (where X is “don’t care”):

 Clear Clock Load Count Function 1 X X X Clear to 0 0 X 0 0 No change 0 $\uparrow$ 1 X Load input 0 $\uparrow$ 0 1 Count input

The counter is connected as follows:

Assume that the counter and gate delays are negligible. If the counter starts at 0, then it cycles through the following sequence:

(A) 0, 3, 4                             (B) 0, 3, 4, 5
(C) 0, 1, 2, 3, 4                     (D) 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
