I am making a table of made up of two columns, but the problem is that in the last row I have multiple column with in a single row, I don't know how to do this. I applied \multicolumn but it did not produce the desired result. Here is an image of the desired table.

There are multiple ways to do this, but in your situation I think the best is to nest tabular environments. Try something like this:

  Heading & Heading \\
  Item 1  & Item 2  \\
  Item 3  &
    A & B       \\
    C & D       \\
  \end{tabular} \\

The above code will produce this table. Add vertical rules as desired (although they should generally be avoided when possible).
