Final 2013

For question 6a, why isn't it considered a trans/cis molecule since it has a double bond and the methyl group is on the opposite side of the ch2 so wouldn't it be E?

Actually it'd be cis (Z), because the largest substituents are the carbons that are attached to the cyclic molecules. The methyl and the hydrogen (not explicitly drawn) are the smaller substituents.

I'm not sure why they didn't include cis/trans in the naming.
