Q: What does “I will definitely apply then.”

does it imply "as soon as possible"? mean?
A: It depends on the context in which it is said.

"I will definitely apply then." can mean "I will definitely apply at the time that we just talked about." Saying "then" usually means you're referring to a certain time or period that was already mentioned before in conversation or that both speakers already knew about. It can mean "I will definitely apply as soon as possible" if that's what you were talking about with the other person. However, if the previous sentence was "Applications will be accepted next week," then the sentence "I will definitely apply then" will mean "I will definitely apply next week."

Also, if the sentence is "I will definitely apply, then," it would just mean that after you hear the person you're talking to mention a certain condition or benefit that you would receive after applying, you're trying to say that you're convinced by it. If the person you're talking to says beforehand, "If you apply, you'll get more pay," you could say "[If that's the case,] I will definitely apply, then."

Q: What is the difference between apply for and register for ?
A: "Apply for" is used when you apply for a job, or you would apply to get into college. "Register for" is more like when you want to sign up for something, such as registering for summer camp, or registering for an account online. "Apply for" usually means there's a chance you will get rejected, but "register for" usually means you have no chance of getting rejected. It's a bit hard to explain, but I hope this was helpful!
Q: What is the difference between apply and sign up ?
A: When you sign up for something, usually it means that it's guaranteed that you will get it. Like, for example, if you were signing up for a social media account, or signing up for the talent show. Applying is sort of like "trying out." For example, if you're applying for a job, you're not guaranteed to get the position. I hope this makes sense and that it helps!!
