why is fluorine a monodentate ligand inspite being the most electronegative element?

Dear Swathi,

Monodentate ligands are Lewis bases that donate a single pair (mono) of electrons to a metal atom. These ligands can be either ions (usually anions) or neutral molecules.

Fluorine is a monodentate ligand because it can donate only one lone pair of electrons.
