Hey there! So you have to consider that OH will have the highest priority here so definitely we'll have an -ol in the end. Next, we look at the parent chain or in this case the ring and since we number starting from OH (1) we go counter-clockwise so we get the least possible number for the double bond which should be 2. Then that branch coming off the ring is a common alkyl substituent which is called sec-butyl on carbon number 5. The name should then be 5-(sec-butyl)cyclohex-2-en-1-ol. I hope this helps!
