what about:
a = list(range(10, 21))


def compare(value, list):
    m,M = min(list), max(list)
    return value>=m, value<=M

b = 9
c = 21

print compare(b,a)
print compare(c,a)

for i in range (8, 25):
    print i, compare(i, a)


"""
(False, True)
(True, False)
8 (False, True)
9 (False, True)
10 (True, True)
11 (True, True)
12 (True, True)
13 (True, True)
14 (True, True)
15 (True, True)
16 (True, True)
17 (True, True)
18 (True, True)
19 (True, True)
20 (True, True)
21 (True, False)
22 (True, False)
23 (True, False)
24 (True, False)
"""

it helps?
