    Antonyms for flat:
    broken, sloping, uneven, upright, thick, bland, inflated, bright . . .

    'Flattest' = 'most flat'. So the opposite is 'least flat'.
    E.g. 'I went to the hire shop for a bicycle and looked around to see which tyres were the least flat'. This suggests that all the tyres were flat to some extent.
    Or 'Of all the regions in England, Norfolk is the flattest, and Cumbria is the least flat'.

    Hope this helps

    ..., hilly, mountainous, melodious, lively, animated...

    I could go on for days, but I'd rather know for which definition of flat or flattest you need an antonym!

    the last three letters are probably "est" then, right? I'll keep trying!
