  1. yes. IT is a cycloalkene.

  2. The trivial name for isopropylbenzene is cumene. It is a substituted benzene.

  3. Therefore cumene is an alkene?

  4. Since benzene is an arene, I would call it that (an arene). Technically, it is an alkene but usually aromatic hydrocarbons are called arenes to distinguish them from their cousins, the straight chain alkenes. And I suspect an organic chemist would fuss at me for even calling them cousins.
