"Containing" True or False? Certainly not:

<class 'list'>
py> type( False or 99 )
<class 'int'>

Based on your examples, I think you mean any expression *evaluating to* True
or False will be a bool. Um, yeah, of course it will. Because it evaluates
to one of the only two bool values, True or False.

That's because the value of A is True.

10<20 shouldn't be thought of as some alternative value which is a bool, any
more than we should think of 1+1 as being a different value to 2.

enough, things got worse.
