    Question [word choice] "suit" or "fit"

    A: I'm really sorry but you don't seem to ________ for the job.
    B: You're right. I don't really like this kind of work.

    (a) suit
    (b) aim
    (c) fit
    (d) seek

    The answer is (a) "suit" on my text book.

    I was wondering if (d) "fit" also could be the answer.

    And, please explain why.

    Thank you so much in advance.

    I don't like any of them after 'to'. I would say 'You don't seem fit/cut out/suitable/ for the job'.
