For part b, Why is there a Pt(s) on the left/anode side of this cell diagram? I thought this was only used when there was no solid but there is an Iodine solid on this side. Is this because Iodine is not a metal?

Yes, even though iodine is a solid it cannot be used as a conductor, so Pt is needed as the electrode.
