Does 2 nonene have cis and trans isomers?  If they do or not why?

Of course it does. Why wouldn't you expect it not to have cis or trans isomers?
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.

Why does it have both then.  I didn't know it could have both?

If they don't specify you have to assume it has both isomers.

Hope this clear the problem.2-nonene is a general name for both isomers. Each isomer has its own name; ie trans-2-nonene or
cis-2-nonene
