I‘m learning Adjektivdeklination from a workbook, and I came to this question where I believe the answer of the book is false.

Heute ist einer der heißest_ Tage des ganzen Jahres.

The answer written in the book is:

heißeste

, whereas

Tage

is plural and, thus, it should be, I think:

heißesten

Can anyone please assist me in that? Thanks :)

Good catch. Your object Tage is in plural (plural genitive more precisely). Therefore, the ending of the corresponding adjective must be -en

    Oh, thanks for the validation. Anyone studying from telc Grammatiktraining Deutsch für B2 like me, pay attention to this mistake on page 47 Exercise 1 part b number 10 :) It just adds more stress to the learner ;)

Singular:

Heute ist der heißeste Tag des ganzen Jahres.
Today is the hottest day of the whole year.

Plural:

Heute ist einer der heißesten Tage des ganzen Jahres.
Today is one of the hottest days of the whole year.
