As it's written, the only way I can see this working is inside an interface, as an implicitly abstract method declaration where "test" denotes a 2-dimensional Boolean array.
But if we are to assume that "test" is some class, then we need a comma between these arguments. In that case, the line is close to working as a method call with an added assignment ("b ="), or simply a method call (without "boolean"). That is...
boolean b = setFlag(Boolean, test);
Where did this come from? And what is the context?

ouch, someone hates you,
it looks like a declaration of a method from an interface, (obviously) it returns a boolean,
it takes a 2 dimensional array of Boolean objects, the parameter name is test,
