Many years ago Rucinski answered the question "When are small subgraphs of a random graph normally distributed?" in the 9-page paper of the same title. We will see a one-line proof of the result after introduction proper Stein's Method machinery and martingale decomposition. These methods go much beyond answering Rucinski Question.
