1) Nonmetals such as carbon and oxygen tend to be good conductors of electricity.

False -- Nonmetals are not good conductors.

2) A semiconductor is a metal that can be manipulated to be either a good or a bad conductor of electricity.

True -- This is why semiconductors are useful for making a transitor. Since the conductive properties can be altered it is possible to make circuits that can be altered.

3) A circuit is a collection of transistors (and possibly ...
