    positions fit for- positions (which are) fit for

    Hi! What is the meaning of the following sentences ?

    -They are positions fit for them.
    -There are only tables set for two.

    Do they mean "They are positions which are fit for them. " and "There are only tables which are set for two people ?"

    Yes. Your two constructions are reduced relative clauses. Notice how you can say the same thing with fewer words when you reduce a relative clause.
