# Isolated vertex, loop, and connected graph

I have the graph $$V=\{a,b,c\}$$ and $$E=\{(b,b),(c,c),(a,b)\}$$.

From the definition of isolated vertex:

"an isolated vertex has no edge",

I can tell that vertex $$c$$ is not an isolated vertex. What confused me is that if $$c$$ is not connected to the other 2 point, is this graph a connected graph? Because this graph has no isolated vertex.

Your graph indeed has no isolated vertices. It is not connected: its connected components are $$\{a,b\}$$ and $$\{c\}$$.
