A: Surely and definitely are close synonyms and can both be understood as "without a doubt", whereas absolutely as "completely", "totally".

Though, there are cases where absolutely and definitely hold closer meaning, for example:
"Are you coming today?"
"Absolutely!" / "Definitely!"
^ both express the sure decision of going, but using surely here wouldn't work.

Surely can also be used to express surprise for something in negative statements, for example "Surely you haven't forgotten her birthday!"
