    For the first one, I believe it's to do with using a more detailed scale. All of the results are between 3-5 cm in width and 4-6 cm in length. If you got rid of all the other numbers, so that the numbers that are related to the results stretch to fill the rest of the axes, the points won't be as clustered and the scatter graph will represent the data better. Though you typically start a graph with 0 at the origin, in a case like this where all the x and y coordinates are very far from 0, you may start the axes with values other than 0, as long as they are appropriate to represent the data.

    For the second one, you've got to say that the width of the outlier (3.1 cm) is far less than would be expected for a pine cone of the outlier's length (5.8 cm). For example, a pine cone, length 5.7 cm has a width of 4.6 cm, so you'd expect the width of the outlier to be similar, however it's a whole 1.5 cm out.
