which is more reactive Cl or F?

Expert Answer
Dear Student
 
They are both from the same group, yes. But F is above Cl so it means that the F's valence shell is nearer the nucleus (or at "lower level") than the valence shell in Cl, which causes F to have more effective nuclear charge.
This fact explains the more affinity for electrons in F in relation to Cl and therefore F is more reactive.
 
We hope that clarifies your query.
