We know that H is never the central atom since it can't form more than one bond, so that rules it out. HNC and HCN are actually both real structures so technically you could have it as the central atom (if you are taking about hydrogen isocyanide vs. hydrogen cyanide). But if we take HCN as a structural formula, which shows the atoms of the molecule in the order that they are bonded, then we know that C is the central atom in HCN.
