  6. In anethole , propene is taken as substituent group (ie as propenyl) in place of phenyl group , while iupac name of styrene is phenylethene where benzene ring is substituent group .So in first case priority is given to benzene ring while in other priority is given to double bond . Pls explain ma’am .. I am a bit confused
