Question

How would the tendency to gain electrons change on moving from left to right in a period of the periodic table? 


Solution

The tendency to gain electron increases as we go from left to right in a period because the effective nuclear charge increases and the atomic radius decreases. 
So the protons hold the electrons more tightly thus the loss of electrons become difficult.
