A semiconductor is known to have an electron concentration of \(8\times 10^{13}~\text{cm}^{-3}\) and a hole concentration of \(5\times 10^{2}~\text{cm}^{-3}\). The semiconductor is:
1. \(\mathrm{n}\text-\)type
2. \(\mathrm{p}\text-\)type
3. intrinsic
4. insulator

Pure \(Si\) at \(500\) K has equal number of electron \((n_i)\) and hole \((n_h)\) concentration of \(1.5\times10^{16}~\text{m}^{-3}.\) Doping by indium increases \(n_h\) to \(4.5\times 10^{22}~\text{m}^{-3}\). The doped semiconductor is of:
1. \(\mathrm{n}\text-\)type with electron concentration \(n_{e}=5\times10^{22}~\text{m}^{-3}\)
2. \(\mathrm{p}\text-\)type with electron concentration \(n_{e}=2.5\times10^{23}~\text{m}^{-3}\)
3. \(\mathrm{n}\text-\)type with electron concentration \(n_{e}=2.5\times10^{10}~\text{m}^{-3}\)
4. \(\mathrm{p}\text-\)type with electron concentration \(n_{e}=5\times10^{9}~\text{m}^{-3}\)
