Work Step by Step

The $C_1$ has four domains (four single bonds). The hybridization is $sp^3$ .The geometry is tetrahedral and the bond angle is 109.5° The $C_2$ has two domains (one single bond and one triple bond). The hybridization is $sp$. The geometry is linear and the bond angle is 180° The $N$ has two domains (one triple bond and one lone pair). The hybridization is $sp$. The geometry is linear and the bond angle is 180°
