9 Convert to disk piercing problem: Adding extra points to edges: Making Wires

10 Hardness (2/4) Reduce from Vertex Cover on planar graphs of max degree 3. Remove cis-3 vertices 10

11 Hardness (3/4) Add vertices at intersections with vertical lines: Consecutive arrays differ in size by at most one: 11

12 Hardness (4/4) Each edge has even number of added points: Convert to instance of WSDUDP: 12
