As we learnt in

Semiconductor -

Energy gap between valence band and conduction band is less than 3 e.v.

- wherein

1) \Delta E_^{g} lies between conductor & insulator 

2) Both electron and holes are responsible for conductivity .

3)    At 0 K behave like an insulator (Si,Ge)

 

 Any semiconductor behaves like an insulator at OK. 

So at OK, Si also behaves as an insulator.

Correct option is 3.

 


Option 1)

non-­metal

Option 2)

metal

This is an incorrect option.

Option 3)
