(draw-solid-disk (make-posn 10 10) 20 'red)
produces true.

(draw-solid-disk (make-posn 50 50) 40 'green)
produces true.

You want the first and the second expression to evaluate to true.
How can you force this to be the case?

Apologies for abusing and, but it offered itself. -- Matthias

P.S. I won't read any flames about the use of and for this purpose.
