Where the lines do cross each other (II)

At my Aprl 8, 6:53 thread a method was proposed to find out, among two different Distributions, and through a given parameter, the original source. I had shown, that this aim can be just achieved, with 95% Power, by using a crescent sample sizes list, that a singular point, were the H0 0.95 fractile descending Skewness values crosses the 0.05 fractile ascending H1, the common sample size can be promptly elected.
To illustrate an important point where only occasionally the 5% monotonic behavior ends we run a routine regarding the Chi-squared 5 degrees of freedom Skewness:

A simple linear interpolation is enough to reestablish the desired decreasing pattern.
