Given: Tin

The conductor bond in an n-type semiconductor allows electrons to travel from the donor atom to the acceptor atom. N-type semiconductors can be made from elements with more valence electrons than germanium.

In the given, tin has the same number of valence electrons as germanium. Thus, it cannot produce an n-type semiconductor.
