I needed to test lists for certain elements inside of it, however, since I 
didn't find the proper function I had to write them myself.

are there functions that can do the following:

- tests (returns true or false) if within the list there is an element that 
appears more than once

- tests if there is an element in the list that is bigger/smaller than a 
certain number

I would really appreciate your help,
