Expert Answer:

Dear Student
Tetracyanoethylene (TCNE), C2CN4, a member of the substituted ethylene group.
               
               (C≡N)2C=C(C≡N)2
 So the hybridisation of central Carbon atoms is sp2
and the carbon bonded with a triple bond will have sp hybridisation.
We hope that clarifies your query.
