Others have shown how to create what you want using With (and that
technique is very important), but the type of function you are
creating here is also a good candidate for Piecewise:

f[x_] := Evaluate[Piecewise[Transpose[{Thread[x < Range[5]^2],

where I have put in the Evaluate so that the Piecewise function does
not have to be created each time f is called.

Information[f] shows you that the definition stored for f is now

You could also use Table instead of the Thread and Transpose used


gives the same result, and is probably easier to read.
