Section 2 says:

         This option is an offer, not a promise; both sides must send
         Window Scale options in their SYN segments to enable window
         scaling in either direction.  If window scaling is enabled,
         then the TCP that sent this option will right-shift its true
         receive-window values by 'shift.cnt' bits for transmission in
         SEG.WND.  The value 'shift.cnt' may be zero (offering to scale,
         while applying a scale factor of 1 to the receive window).

It should say:

         This option is an offer, not a promise; both sides must send
         Window Scale options in their SYN segments to enable window
         scaling in either direction.  If window scaling is enabled,
         then the TCP that sent this option will left-shift its true
         receive-window values by 'shift.cnt' bits for transmission in
         SEG.WND.  The value 'shift.cnt' may be zero (offering to scale,
         while applying a scale factor of 1 to the receive window).

Notes:

This need to be left shift
--VERIFIER NOTES--
