Pick two of helium, neon, krypton or xenon


Since argon is a member of the chemical family known as the noble gases, and is characterized by a complete lack of chemical reactions, it is very similar to the others in the same column of the periodic table.

All of these have the very stable eight valence electron configuration (helium = 2), which is associated with chemical stability.
