    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 on my text book is (a) "suit."
    I was wondering if (c) "fit" could also be an answer.
    And, please explain why.
    Thank you so much in advance.

    Are you sure that "None of them are right in this sentence."?

    Then what word would be right?

    Would you please give me an example and explain why?
