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.

The heavy ball has more inertia and the light ball has less energy, hence they do not bounce as high as the bouncy ball. The bouncy ball is designed with a material that can store and quickly release kinetic energy upon impact, leading to a higher bounce.
