I quite agree that the Bernoulli is discrete, but i have read that Sn(sum of n bernoulli variables with prob of success=p) will converge in law to Normal, if we standardize these as i mentioned before, this will be N(0,1), I admit it wont work for 45, but it still doesnt pass the KS test for 200, and i thought this test in practise worked for discrete. I wrote the same program in Mathematica, where the Null is accepted at n=170-200.
