Determine the electron geometry and molecular geometry or the underlined carbon in CH_{3}CN.

A) tetrahedral/tetrahedral

B) linear/trigonal planar

C) trigonal planar/bent

D)linear/linear

E)trigonal planar/trigonal planar

I'm not really sure how to structure this molecule and I also don't know what it means when it wants the electron geometry and molecular geometry for that specific carbon. all the other problems we have done would ask for the electron geometry and molecular geometry for the molecule as a whole.
