H2CNH

            Group            Valence Electrons
H        1A                   1 × 3 e = 3 e
C        4A                   1 × 4 e = 4 e
N        5A                   1 × 5 e = 5 e
                         Total:  12 valence e


H → can only make 1 bond

C → follows octet rule → can make up to 4 bonds
