4.

See the Related Questions for how to determine the number of electrons in the outermost shell of all the elements!

group 1 elements have to 'lose' one electron to fill their outermost shell of electrons group 7 elements have to 'gain' one electron to complete their outermost shell of electrons

Both terms are acceptable due to the fact that eight electrons exist in the outermost shell of all elements in the group. Therefore, one could say that this group has 8 electrons in the outermost shell or that there are no electrons in the outermost shell - as the structure is stable! It is the perspective of a person.

Group seven elements have 7 electrons in their outermost energy level.

In the periodic table, group indicates the number of valence electrons in the outermost shell. E.g. Group I- the elements in that group have one valence electron in the outermost shell.
