VC is NPC. In the recitation, Ori mentioned that it is NP-hard because that was the main issue in showing WVC is NP-hard (reduction from every language in NP). Every NPC is also NP-hard by definition. And we've showed a two-way reduction between VC and Independent Set, implying that VC is NPC (+ the verifier you wrote).

In one of the recitations we said that VC is NP-hard (we used that fact to show that WVC is NP-hard). But isn't VC actually NP-complete? I mean - why isn't VC in NP? A polynomial verifier for VC will get a set of vertices C of size k (as the witness) and check whether those vertices touch all the edges of the graph.
