    Due to carbon only having 4 electrons in its outer energy shell, it wants to form 4 bonds with other elements. This enables carbon to form chains, branched chains and rings. These structures wouldn't be possible if carbon could only form 3, 2, or 1 bond. - Bioteach (Yahoo Answers) I hope this helps.
