This very much depends on the electronic structure of the atoms involved in the molecule and the type of hybdridisation.
 
Lets tate example of CH2O molecule. The carbon has four free electrons in its outer shell and 2 of those are used with the 2 Hydrogen atoms so it only has 2 bonds left and so forms a double bond with the oxygen.
