nobel gases are stable bcause of their complete octet state i.e. the have a complete shell and do not need to combine or join other elements to reach their octet state.

because they have duplet or octet electron configuration.
The Noble Gas elements are stable and unreactive (inert) because the outer valence shells are complete with eight electrons, s 2p6
Neon - Ne 1s 2 2s 22p 6
Argon - Ar 1s 2 2s 22p 63s 23p 6
Krypton - Kr [Ar]3d 104s 2 4p6
With the outer s and p orbitals filled and the rule of octet satisfied the Noble Gas elements do not seek to gain or lose electrons through the process of bonding..
