The valency is the combining power of an element with the other atoms. The valency of noble gases is zero because its combining capacity is zero. These have a complete octet. Complete octet means that the outermost shell has complete 8 electrons. So noble gases cannot gain or lose electrons in a reaction. Hence the valency of noble gases is zero.
