On the 2015 exam, Q10A did not list them as functional groups.
Since it says that any functional group that is incorrect will have points taken off, I was wondering if we needed to circle to double bonds as well since they are alkenes.

This confused me too because on Q5A. on the 2013 final alkene was considered a functional group but not on 2015 Q10? So I don't get whether or not it is..

I would label them as functional groups just in case so we don't lose points unnecessarily.
