    These books are suitable/suited for children aged 4 to 6.

    Are both adjectives all right in sentence 1 'These books are suitable/suited for children aged 4 to 6'? I know we can delete both words. I'd like to learn how to distinguish between suitable and suited.

    And how about this one:
    2. Bob is suited/suitable for the job.

    Bob is suited to this job.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
