Name of this epoxide

  1. for this epoxide, I don't understand why the R and S part are omitted from the name?? If both of the CH groups were on the back side, it would be a different molecule, yet have the same name??

  3. As discussed at chemicalforums, it's possible that the drawing is meant to represent a racemic mixture of cis isomers.
