    The axis of the different pictures are not the same, they are more “zoomed in” for the smaller nuclei. I think that we can conclude by looking at the exact solution that the quadrupole term increases with an increase in size of the nucleus, and conversely decreases when the nucleus tends more and more to a point particle which makes sense. If the nucleus reduces back to a point particle only the monopole contribution should remain.
