Dear Amit
 
For Carbon, answer is 4.
 
Carbon has 4 valence electrons. When carbon makes a bond with another atom, it shares its electron with the other atom and the other atom shares its electron. This causes the carbon to basically gain another electron. So following the octate rule, the carbon atom can only make 4 bonds maximum because by then, it will have 8 valence electrons.
