  3. ordinary Semiconductor: The Fermi level (Ef) is located within the gap, and its electronic density is around 10^18.

    Degenerative one: Ef is located above the conduction band, and its electronic density is around 10^22. it conducts like a metal which has a low resistivity.
  4. The correct term is:

    "degenerate statistics"
