Chemistry - What is an exocyclic double bond?
Surely you are aware that the calculation of this sort is but a very rough estimate, yet still I feel the urge to stress that once more. Having said that, let's look at the double bond in the first cycle: isn't it exocyclic with respect to the other cycle?
The double bond B is exocyclic to ring 2 as it is attached to an atom which is shared between ring 1 and ring 2 while the double bond A is not connected to any ring 2 atoms and is within just one ring, hence making it endocyclic
