### #21 on churro Qs

Referring to #21 on churro questions ("The overall molecule as shown is neutral. What is the oxidation state of the iron?")
Can someone explain to me why the answer is +2? When I added up all of the formal charges for the surrounding N atoms, I got +6, and I don't understand how a +2 charge on Fe can result from that. Thanks!
