Draw the Lewis structure for CN and you will see it is a C triple bond to N.

As I discussed in class:
CC single bond is weaker/longer
CC double bond is stronger/shorter
CC triple bond is strongest/shortest

What do you mean by CX bonds?

CX bonds usually mean X is a certain element for a problem most likely. The length of a bond is shorter if the bond is stronger, such as if there are a larger number of bonds, single, double, and triple being the strongest.
