Just a note

On both graphs the red line shows the result we would expect, on average, if these observations represent a normal population - which we know they do. In practice, sampling error will ensure there is some scatter about this line - the smaller the sample, the greater that scatter is liable to be. This is perfectly reasonable because a small sample is only able to convey a limited amount of information about the population it (presumably) represents.
