    Rotation about double bond is not possible but the whole unsaturated molecule (including all atoms of the molecule) can be rotated about an axis containing maximum no. of atoms (principle axis).

    look at the attached picture. First one is rotation around principle axis and second is rotation around subsidiary axis.

    ok sir , but how can I see it in benzene. because it is a cyclic structure .

    Don't worry for double bonds in benzene..they are delocalised.
