To get geometric isomers you must have:
restricted rotation
two different groups on the left-hand end of the bond and two different groups on the right-hand end. It doesn't matter whether the left-hand groups are the same as the right-hand ones or not.
Here there is arestricted rotation but the groups attached are same.So it will not show geometrical isomerism
