\({C}\) and \({Si}\) both have the same lattice structure, having \(4\) bonding electrons in each. However, \(C\) is an insulator whereas \(Si\) is an intrinsic semiconductor. This is because:
1. in the case of \(C\), the valence band is not completely filled at absolute zero temperature.
2. in the case of \(C\), the conduction band is partly filled even at absolute zero temperature.
3. the four bonding electrons in the case of \(C\) lie in the second orbit, whereas in the case of \(Si\), they lie in the third.
4. the four bonding electrons in the case of \(C\) lie in the third orbit, whereas for \(Si\), they lie in the fourth orbit.
