The recursion is:

Function BinaryComplete(p) As Boolean

    if Not(HasRightChild(p) or HasLeftChild(p)) then
        return True
    else if HasRightChild(p) And HasLeftChild(p)
        return BinaryComplete(LeftChild(p)) And BinaryComplete(RightChild(p))
    else 'only one child exists, the tree is not binary-complete
        return False
    end if
 
End Function

I used functional form, but LeftChild(p) is most likely to be p.leftChild in the actual implmentation, and HasRightChild(p) is likely to be implemented as the Boolean expression p.rightChild is Nothing.

I just realized that this sounds like a homework assignment.  If it is, the Moderators may feel free to delete this.

It isn't homework assignment, its the answer to a question in an exam from the last year.
