Why Is Fluorine the Most Reactive Halogen?

Answer

The most reactive halogen is fluorine. This is because fluorine atoms are highly electronegative due to their effective nuclear charge making it very easy for these atoms to gain electrons. Fluorine is lethal as it attacks inert substances and is able to form compounds with heavier noble gases.
