If we have the convergence of $X_n$ to $X$ in $L^2$ how can we get $EX_n^2$ converges to $EX^2$ or is it true at all?

Welcome to math.SE: since you are new, I wanted to let you know a few things about the site. In order to get the best possible answers, it is helpful if you say in what context you encountered the problem, and what your thoughts on it are; this will prevent people from telling you things you already know, and help them give their answers at the right level. If this is homework, please add the homework tag; people will still help, so don't worry. –  Julian Kuelshammer Dec 2 '12 at 9:09
