What kind of element has greatest tendency to attract electron? why?

Answers

Non-metals have the greatest tendency to attract electrons because theyhave high electronegativity. Electronegativity is a measure of the tendency of an atom to attract electrons, the higher its value, the higher its tendency to attract electrons.
The kind of element that has the greatest tendency to attract electrons are inert gases or noble gases, in the right side of the periodic table. It is because the nuclear charge is bigger for the elements in the right side of the periodic table, and inert gases or noble gases' atom is the best to attract electrons.
