Carbon has 4 valency and is given no charge as said by my teacher then why is hydrogen having

+1&-1 charges, as the valency shell should have 2 or 8 electrons can anyone explain me.


Hydrogen has -1&+1 charge because in fact that every atom will be neutral but i assume that your asking for hydrogen ion charge that would be +1 as it loses one electron when it bonds with, say chlorine atom for example
