Since it is balanced, it didn't make bonding.

Neon is an inert gas because it doesn't contain any loan pair of electrons in its outermost orbital hence it won't react with any other molecules. Reactivity of any molecule is strictly depends on its electronic configuration and the number of single electrons or lone pair of electrons in its outermost orbital.
