```So far we know that

Plot[{x, x^2, x^3}, {x, 0, 1}]

gives 3 default colors

Plot[{{x, x^2, x^3}}, {x, 0, 1}]

gives 3 default colors

Plot[{x, x^2, x^3}, {x, 0, 1}, PlotStyle -> {Red, Green, Blue}]

gives 3 designated colors

Plot[Table[x^n, {n, 1, 3}], {x, 0, 1}, PlotStyle -> {Red, Green, Blue}]

gives single color -- and it's NOT Red
But if you Evaluate the table you get 3 designated colors

Plot[0.8 {x, x^2, x^3}, {x, 0, 1}, PlotStyle -> {Red, Green, Blue}]

gives single color, not Red

Plot[List[x, x^2, x^3], {x, 0, 1}, PlotStyle -> {Red, Green, Blue}]

gives 3 designated colors (meaning, List[] gets evaluated,
even though Table didn't?)

Plot[List[{x, x^2, x^3}], {x, 0, 1}, PlotStyle -> {Red, Green, Blue}]

gives 3 designated colors  (List in this variant form also
gets evaluated?)

QUIZ:  What will the following give?

Plot[0.5 List[{x, x^2, x^3}], {x, 0, 1},  PlotStyle -> {Red, Green,Blue}]

Plot[List[0.5 {x, x^2, x^3}], {x, 0, 1}, PlotStyle -> {Red, Green, Blue}]
