Well its B because they have filled their shell which means A B and D are out. This is because noble gases has done what all the elements want to do which is fill their shells.

the answer is b. elements react because they want to gain a full outer shell of electrons (or in other words, to have 8 valence electrons). because noble gases already have 8 valence electrons, they don't need to gain any more/won't give them up easily.
