Best Answer

it will bounce higher if there is more air.

ex. Flat Basketball- being flat, the ball will just hit the floor and will be pressed inwards on the spot it landed

pumped basketball- being full of air, the ball hits the ground and like a flat basketball is pressed inwards. but because there's air in it, the air will make the ball retain its shape and bounce.
