Net of a cube with faces shaded in varying ways

Which of the following cubes can be made from the net above?

Cube A Cube B Cube C
Cube D Cube E Cube F

Is it possible to shade one more section of the net of the cube (perhaps like in the diagram below) and be able to give the same answer? Convince me.
