Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific Study Help forum should help get responses.
I'm going to quote in Puddles the Monkey now so she can move your thread to the right place if it's needed.

Not about the double-bond, since the condition for optical activity is that there are 4 different groups bonded to the chiral carbon. But if you have a chiral carbon elsewhere in the molecule, they can be optically active.
