Is it possible to pass Boolean method as a parameter of another Boolean methods “if” statement ?. Basically I want to have a “if” statement execute if the parameter ( in this case the other Boolean method) is true. Something to this effect :

Yes you can. That's a common and acceptable idiom.

You mean to use the return value of a boolean method as an expression. You don't call it a parameter there.

Note this alternative version of your code
