Method 1

If you want Min and Max value for each ID in the list, then you have to group by ID and the get MAX and Min accordingly like:

var query = yourList.GroupBy(r=> r.ID)
                    .Select (grp => new 
                                ID = grp.Key, 
                                Min = grp.Min(t=> t.Col1), 
                                Max = grp.Max(t=> t.Col2)

Use Enumerable.Max method to calculate maximum like:
var max = yourList.Max(r=> r.Col1);

Use Enumerable.Min method to calculate minimum on a field like:
var min = yourList.Min(r=> r.Col2);

Method 2

You can sort, something like:

var min = yourList.OrderBy(p => p.Col1).First();
var max = yourList.OrderByDescending(p => p.Col1).First();
