1-heptene - no
1,2-dimethylcyclopentene - Yes
2-methyl-3-hexene - yes
2-methyl-2-butene - Yes

I'm not an organic chemist AND I have trouble visualizing these in my mind, but I think 1 methylcyclopentane is no. There are no double bonds. I have trouble with 1,2-dimethylcyclopentene but you're probably right. The others I would agree with you. If you are putting your answers into a data base post to let me know if my answer is ok.
