The structure of ethene is $CH_{2}=CH_{2}$

Thus, it is clearly visible that it has

4 single bonds and 1 double bondleading to4σ(sigma) bonds from 4 single bonds.and

1σ(sigma) bond and 1π(pi) bond from the double bond.Thus sum of the sigma and the pi bonds present in ethene is

5σ + 1π= $\boxed{6}$
