why do actinides have more than +3 oxidation states? why do actinides have greater complex forming tendency than lanthanides? why do actinides have the tendency to form oxocations?

actinoid exhibit larger oxidation states than lanthanoids beacuse of very small energy gap between 5f , 6d and 7f subshell . 
the energy will be decided on the besis on (n+l ) rule . 
5f = 5+3 =8 
6d = 6+2 = 8 
ALL THE THINGS COMES OUT TO BE SAME HERE , SO, THEY HAVE SAME ENERGY 
HOPE IT CLEARS 
ALL THE BEST ..
