So the more electronegative elements are more likely to get the electron?

Yes electronegativity have to do with how much an atom wants the electron (more electronegative means they are close to being in a stable configuration)

Yes, elements with higher electronegativity are more likely to get electrons as they are closer to reaching a stable configuration.

Yes higher electronegativity means higher attraction of electrons

Electronegativity is defined as the tendency of an atom to attract a shared pair of electrons towards itself. Therefore, in a polar bond, the more electronegative atom will attract the electron density toward itself.

Yes. The more electronegative elements are, the more likely they are to gain electrons, because they are almost close to being stable.

Yes, electronegativity is an atom's tendency to attract electrons to itself. Fluorine is the most electronegative atom in the periodic table.

the periodic table trend of electronegativity is increasing up and to the right

the definition for electronegativity is "the tendency of an atom to attract a shared pair of electrons towards itself". So, yes the higher the electronegativity in elements are more likely to get electrons.

An atom is more electronegative when they are close to being octet. As many do say, it is a measurement of how an element may pull the electrons towards itself and it can be used to see whether the bond is ionic or covalent bond.

Yes, elements with stronger electronegativity are more likely to attract electrons.

Electronegativity increases as you go up and to the right of the periodic table until the final Group 18 (Noble Gases). Group 18 is all the way to the right of the periodic table, except all of these have stable valence shells so their electronegativity is a much lower value than the proceeding groups.

Yes, electronegativity describes the pull of electrons. It increases up and to the right of the periodic table

As for the trend just remember that Fluorine is the most electronegative atom and therefore it decreases going down and to the left.

Why is Nitrogen more electronegative than Oxygen but has a lower first ionization energy.
