Cool question.

I think there are at least three: hemisphere, section of an obloid, cone.

Since you did not say face, you appreciate difference between definitions in platonic solids as defined by Euclid and Euler, and the curved solids. A hemisphere has one flat surface and no vertices, but so does a cone. A vertex is defined as the meeting of edges, which are defined as straight in euclidean geometry. Since there are no straight edges coming to a point in a cone (unless you want to talk about infinite edges emanating from the flat surface), there are no vertices on a cone.

### Which solid figure has 1 flat surface and 0 vertices?

This is an impossibility. If it is a solid figure then it will
have more than 1 surface. If it has only 1surface and it is a
solid, then it must be a sphere, but the surface of a sphere is not
flat is it? By using the word 'solid' then by definition, it is
three dimensional and has thickness. A cylinder has no vertices ,
but it has 2flat surfaces. A vertex is a point where three lines
meet, such...

### How many flat faces do a cone have?

A cone has 1 flat surface, because a cone has 1 corner and has 4
edges. The reason that is is because a cone is round. A cone has a
flat surface at the bottom of the cone. The reason it is because
the cone doesn't have any vertices and most of the solid and plane
figures have vertices.
