The carbon hydrogen bond is covalent in nature. Carbon shares its outer valence electrons with upto 4 hydrogens


Atoms make bonds to become stable.As hydrogen carries 1 electron and it need 1 more electron to be stable or to complete its duplet, in the same way carbon needs
4 more electrons to complete its octate so by sharing the outer
4 valence electrons with 4 hydrogens in this way both carbon and hydrogren complete their outer sshells and become stable.
