why triple bond is the maximum bond possible between two carbon atoms? why can't they form a quadruple bond i.e. 4 single bonds with each other by sharing their 4 valence electrons so that a C2 molecule is formed?

Answer:
Basically, the orbitals that allow for single, double, and triple bonds between carbons to not have to bend very much, but the last orbital which would allow for a quadruple bond would have to been too far, so it makes it impossible for carbon to form a quadruple bond with itself.
