A single bond between two atoms is always considered as sigma bond.
A double bond between two atoms is always considered as one sigma and one pi bond
A triple bond between two atoms is always considered as one sigma bond and two pi bonds.
So according to the given structureCaC2​(Calcium carbide) ha 1 sigma and 2 pi bonds

The is a crystal and it's structure is: Both carbon atoms have an sp hybridization, therefore one of the bonds between them is a sigma covalent bond and the others are pi covalent bonds: Each sp carbon atom has four electrons that can be shared on each of the hybrid orbitals: 2 in the s orbital and 2 in the sp orbital.
