    a. if you mean it as a short term for a longer word, then it's defeat or defame, basically anything that starts with a def, but since i was browsing through tt, i'd have to go with defeat

    b. apt - ability. it's a real word. not a short one.

    c. aptivous - i've never heard of it before. but if i had to guess, it sounds like the adjective of apt.
