Explanation:

No answer description available for this question.

 Kirti said: (Apr 18, 2014) A general counter with 5 flip-flops has 2^5 states. But a ring counter has only 5 states.

 Tarun Agrawal said: (Jun 25, 2014) In Ring counter the number of states depends upon the number of Flip-flop. So according to given question. In ring counter there is 5 flipflop. So the no.of state will be '5'.

 Ankit Sharna said: (Jun 30, 2014) Because ring counter is N:1 counter. & johnson counter is 2N:1 counter.

 Abhinav Dixit said: (Jul 11, 2014) And also because ring counter is a synchronous counter and it's states depends on the number of FF present.

 Biswajit said: (Jul 17, 2014) Since Ring Counter is a N:1 counter, thus the no.of states is 5.

 Swati said: (Aug 3, 2014) Ring counter it is like ring so there may have only that (5) states.

 Shaikh Ismail said: (Sep 15, 2014) A general counter with 5 flip-flops has 2^5 states. But a ring counter has only 5 states.

 Renuka said: (Sep 25, 2014) 5 state indicates: 10000 01000 00100 00010 00001 The 5 bit ring counter repeatedly operate on this states. For 6 bit ring counter no of states = 6.

 Nitin said: (Sep 30, 2014) In ring counter each flip flops output is subjected to the next ff's input and the output of nth ff is connected to input or first ff. So after every n clock pulses the sequence will repeats.

 Neena said: (Oct 31, 2014) No.of possible states for n bit ring counter is n. Since here 5 flip-flops are used so no.of possible states is 5.

 Tivam said: (Nov 17, 2014) Number of states is nothing but number of flip flops.

 Ashwini said: (Nov 20, 2014) No of flip-flop= no of states in ring counter.

 Dream said: (Dec 21, 2014) Only ring counter which states depends upon the no. of flip flop.

 R.B.Yadav said: (Feb 5, 2015) Ring counter is one bit shifter in each state.

 Mukesh Duhan said: (May 23, 2015) In a ring counter the no. of states are always equal to no of flip flops.

 Ravi Shankar Kumar said: (May 27, 2015) In ring counter number of states is equal to number of FF.

 Saurab said: (Jul 25, 2015) Can anyone tell me the basic difference between a flip flop and a latch and also between synchronous and asynchronous? Thanks.

 Saurab said: (Jul 25, 2015) Can anyone tell me the basic difference between a flip flop and a latch and also between synchronous and asynchronous? Thanks.

 Tikesh said: (Dec 1, 2015) Flipflop operates on clock whereas latch does not require clock. In synchronous system, all operation done at same time with same clock but in asynchronous system, operation done one by one with different clock inputs.

 Prarthi said: (Jun 26, 2016) In-ring counter, the number of the state depends on the number of the flip-flops.

 Nitin said: (Jul 18, 2016) Ring counter is N : 1 counter >>if it is 5, then 5 states. Johnson counter is 2N : 1 counter>>here 10 states. General counter is 2^N : 1 counter>>here 32 states.

 Ashwini said: (Aug 30, 2016) Thanks a lot for all your explanation and solution.

 Sidharth said: (Jan 22, 2017) Ring counter means N-bit counter 5 ff means 5 bit so 5 states will be there.

 Dinakar Kuchi said: (Feb 2, 2017) Just remember - a flip-flop can store one-bit value so the number of states will be 5.

 S T Patnaik said: (Jun 24, 2017) Ring counter is n state, given input 5 ff so answer 5.

 Mahesh Kumar Tadaka said: (Jul 16, 2017) An n-bit ring counter has only n states. Here 5 flip-flops are present (i. e 5 bits) so it has 5 states.

 Mohammed Umar said: (Dec 13, 2017) What is the function of ring counter?

 Nikitha said: (Jul 8, 2018) Each flipflop has one state i.e,5 FF has 5 states.

 Paridhi Wadikar said: (Jul 17, 2018) An N-bit ring counter can count only N-bits.

 Ankush said: (Oct 19, 2018) A number of states equal to a number Of flip-flop in ring counter.

 Shiv said: (Jul 26, 2019) Ring counter with n flip flops will have n states.

 Thatraju Nikhitha said: (Dec 19, 2019) In a ring counter, no.of states=no.of flipflops used. In a johnson counter(switch tail or twisted counter), no.of states= 2*no.of flipflops used.

 Praveen said: (Apr 4, 2020) In ring counter, no of FF is equal to no of states.

 Aishwarya Nayak said: (Jul 6, 2020) For ring counter, no. of states=N=no.of flipflops=5. For johnson counter,no. of ststes = 2N = 2 * 5 = 10. For general counter,no.of ststes = 2^N = 2^5 = 32.
