There is no set amount of valence electrons for nonmetals. The amount of valence electrons a nonmetal has is determined by the number of electrons on the outer shell of the atom.

What family is a reactive group of mostly nonmetals whose atoms have 7 valence electrons?

The Halogen family.All but one of the halogens are nonmetals, and all share similar properties. A halogen atom has 7 valence electrons and typically gains or shares one electron when it reacts.Hope this helped.


Use the concept of electron configurations to explain why the number of valence electrons in metals tends to be less than the number in most nonmetals?

All atoms are in their lowest energy state when they have eight valence electrons like the noble gases. Metals contain fewer electrons in their outer shell and tend to form cations to have a noble gas configuration of electrons. Nonmetals contain more electrons and form anions to gain 8 valence electrons.
