Solution 1

The bond dissociation energy of N2 is very high because of the triple bond present between the two nitrogen atoms. Therefore, N2 is less reactive at room temperature.

Solution 2

The two N atoms in N2 are bonded to each other by very strong triple covalent bonds. The bond dissociation energy of this bond is very high. As a result, N2 is less reactive at room temperature.
