 Dear Community,I created a table of several ParametricPlots, such as:Table[ParametricPlot[{j Sin[u], j Sin[2 u]}, {u, 0, 2 Pi}, PlotRange -> All, AspectRatio -> 1], {j, 0.1, 101, 10}]and I want that each parametric plot has a different color for each iteration. Can you please tell me how can I do it?I have tried ColorFunction -> Function[{j}, Hue[j]] with no successMany thanks in advance, Sofia

 Take a look at the output of Hue in your Table: Table[Hue[j], {j, 0.1, 101, 10}] Hue needs a value between 0 and 1. It doesn't know what to do with values outside that range. So let's divide j by 101 so that the values go from 0 to 1. This makes a rainbow Table[Hue[j/101], {j, 0.1, 101, 10}] Try using PlotStyle -> Hue[j/101]: Table[ParametricPlot[{j Sin[u], j Sin[2 u]}, {u, 0, 2 Pi}, PlotStyle -> Hue[j/101], PlotRange -> All, AspectRatio -> 1], {j, 0.1, 101, 10}] ColorFunction can also be used but is more complicated. It controls the color based on the "x, y" values of the plot.
