Why arent there any explanation for aromatic in the table and benzene and unsaturated naphthene are written under aromotic so are benzene and unsaturated naphthene are aromatic but saturated naphthene not?

Two different naphthene.

What does it mean "aromatic"?

Do you understand the difference between benzene and cyclohexane?

I agree table is not especially good, but formulas given explain rather well what is what. Especially when you know the answers to the question I posted earlier.
