    plz tell me a generic method of design a clock divider by any even number N,let suppose 6 with exactly 50% duty cycle.

    Hello,

    You can make a divide by 3 followed by a divide by two (for the 50/50 dutycycle).

    Clock a D-type flip-flop with the Q\ output tied to the input. That will give you a /2 output with a 50% duty cycle.

    Cascade any number of FF's for however far you want to divide it.
    Propagation delays will be cumulative, however.
