Why are the noble gases chemically inert?

The outer or valence shell of these elements is complete. And they need not to make any bond.

They do not share or transfer the electrons .

Due to fully filled orbitals, Their ionisation enthalpies are also very high. So removing an electron from them is also very difficult.

The examples of these are Helium, Neon, Argon, Krypton , Xenon and Randon.
