The elements are ranked (from most reactive to least reactive) in the following order: F, Cl, Br, I.
The trends of reactivity for the periodic table follow a general pattern for metal and non-metal elements.
For metals, reactivity increases moving down a group ...
The relative reactivity of the halogens are discussed, including a link to a diagram outlining general trends in reactivity for the periodic table.
This solution provides a relative ranking of four elements in the halogen group with respect to reactivity. A brief discussion pertaining to trends of reactivity is provided.
