electron affinity

Does the electron affinity trend apply to the noble gasses?

I would assume no, as they already have filled orbitals.

no because electron affinity is the energy released when an electron is added but since the noble gases have fulled valence shells it requires energy to add an electron so the elements with the highest electron affinity are in the top of group 17.
