How can i explain the electron configuration for silcon. I Know it's [Ne].3s2.3p2 but how do i explain it.

Si has 14 electrons.
The fill by low energy level to higher is
1s2, 2s2, 2p6, 3s2, 3p2
I don't know what else there is to explain. If this isn't the answer you are looking for, please clarify your question.

Yes It Does thanks
