Naming type of reactant and commenting on reaction.

What type of reactant is cyanide? Draw its Lewis structure and comment on how it can react. What is the hybridization of the carbon and nitrogen atoms?
I found this question in the OChem textbook. Please explain how to solve this.

You would probably need to know the structure (or its constituents beforehand or look it up online). The molecular formula is , with a triple bond. Judging from the small size and charge, you should be able to figure out some of its reactive properties.
