    so this is the question.(2)
    substances would exhibit geometric isomerism if they did not have any double bonds or do not have a ring structure.
    however non of these are alkenes listed for question 2.
    I am confused on how to solve this question.
    any help would be appreciated
    thanks

    The general rule is that a structure will exhibit geometric isomerism if there is a decent amount of restricted rotation about a bond.

    But... I'm pretty sure none of those molecules satisfy that.

    I think you're right. None of them exhibit geometric isomerism.

    The question is almost definitely written incorrectly.
