guys can anyone of you tell me how to negate this sentence:

Most prospective parents who apply to adopt babies donot meet the minimum standards.

Related question:
1. Is most equivalent to some in which case the logical opposite would be none right?
2. Should we negate most and donot simultaneously or just one of them and if so which one?

Thanks in advance!

I agree with jaiswalamrita on this. The negation would be to change "Do Not" to "Do" because they are logical opposites.

For your related questions:
1-None is not the opposite of most. In some cases, you could use "least" as the opposite of "most". The most profitable method v. the least profitable method. For this sentence, there really isn't an opposite to most.
2-To negate the sentence you only change one item because otherwise you get a double negative, which is no change at all. :)
