    Shouldn't it be 4? Since there is two pi bonds and each holds two electrons?

    Since alkene consists of carbon carbon double bond,and is made up of sigma bond and pi bond.double bond itself is 4 electrons.remember C has 4 outer electrons,2 electrons are shared with hydrogen(covalent bond) so it is left with 2 electrons to share with another C which is the same.pi bond is a part of C=C,thus i believe it has 2 electrons since another 2 electrons is in sigma bond.

    I think.correct me if i am wrong.
