C# Lists Remove, Add keep track of indexes

Hello,

I have the below code - created a list and populated it with all true booleans as default.  When the filter isn't satisfied false is applied.  Current problem is keeping track of the indexes - found adding:

   goodOrBad.RemoveAt(i);
   goodOrBad.Add(false);

for the first index still returns true at goodOrBad[0].  Even through it entered the statement to convert it.  How are the indexes stored?  Are they in reverse?  How can this be solved?

 for (int l = 0; l <number; l++)
            {
                goodOrBad.Add(true);
            }

            foreach (KeyValuePair<string, List<FilterClass>> filter in d)
            {
                if (filter.Key.Equals(selectedFilterList[0]))
                {
                    List<FilterClass> list = filter.Value;

                    foreach (FilterClass c in list)
                    {
                        double lowerValue = c.LowerFilter;
                        double upperValue = c.UpperFilter;

                        double[] a = results.ValuesByName(c.Name);

                        // take index of failing add to set
                        for (int i = 0; i < a.Length; i++)
                        {


                           if (((double)a.GetValue(i) <= lowerValue) ||
                                ((double)a.GetValue((i)) >= upperValue))
                            {
                                if (goodOrBad[i].Equals(true))
                                {
                                
                                    goodOrBad.RemoveAt(i);
                                    goodOrBad.Add(false);
                                                                    }

                            }

                        }
                    }
                }
            }

Maybe I didn't understand your question well. but it seems you want change a value in the list from true to false.
instead of :
goodOrBad.RemoveAt(i);
goodOrBad.Add(false);

use :

goodOrBad[i] = false;

or:

goodOrBad.RemoveAt(i);
goodOrBad.Insert(i,false);





goodOrBad[i] = false;

or:

goodOrBad.RemoveAt(i);
goodOrBad.Insert(i,false);

When you use goodOrBad.RemoveAt(i) that record is deleted from the list and everything above it shifts one index down.
If you use goodOrBad.Add(False), the value is added at the end of the list
Change to
  if (((double)a.GetValue(i) <= lowerValue) || ((double)a.GetValue((i)) >= upperValue))
  {
        goodOrBad[i] = false;
  }
