    Well b cannot be cis trans isomer because there are no double bonds between carbons present. Cis Trans occurs due to double bonds between Carbon atoms

    You can see 2 groups around one atom of C are same so cannot be cis trans isomer had it been different it would exhibit cistrans isomerism.
