2E.21

How do you do part a from 2E.21? It asks to draw the Lewis structure and give approximate bond angles of C2H4. Maybe I'm drawing it wrong but what is the central atom? I have the carbons bonded with two hydrogens bonded to each.

In this case, technically there are two central atoms (the 2 C atoms), and both are trigonal planar structures. So i would write both.
