g[x_, n_] := x^n FullForm[Table[g[x, n], {n, 1, 2}]] FullForm[{g[x, 1], g[x, 2]}] Plot[{g[x, 1], g[x, 2]}, {x, 0, 1}, PlotStyle -> {Red, Blue}] Plot[Table[g[x, n], {n, 1, 2}], {x, 0, 1}, PlotStyle -> {Red, Blue}] The FullForm[]s are identical. One Plot[] has red and blue curves; the other has two blue curves. Quirky!
