Comment on the correctness of the statement, “All compounds containing a noble gas atom violate the octet rule.”

Answer:

A noble gas has a full valence shell, so for it to take on or lose electrons in a bond it would no longer have a full valence shell, thus breaking the octet rule.(I typed out a better explanation but when I clicked submit and logged in it erased it so hopefully this shortened version works. If not, let me know and I’ll give a fuller explanation)
