The 15 triplets listed below were created by dividing each
of 5 not-so-common 9-letter words - each into 3 parts:

QUA, SUN, UAC, LLE, QUA,
ALL, SQU, LOQ, ITY, ARE,
AQU, UNE, LED, VIA, DRI.

You are requested to
- reconstruct the original words
- provide a short comment on each
- discover one common feature, present in all five.

Have fun!

There is only one set that fits the requirements:
AQU/ARE/LLE = a watercolor picture
LOQ/UAC/ITY = the gift of the gab
QUA/DRI/VIA = four divisions of arts*
SUN/SQU/ALL = any large jellyfish
UNE/QUA/LED = superior to others

* geometry, astronomy, arithmetic, and music. [Late Latin: place where four roads meet : quadri-4 + via - road; ]


A common feature :
"QUA" appears in each of the 5 words.
