Nope, ultima means "last". definitiva means something like "I'm not going to change my mind". In the popular quiz show "Chi vuol essere milionario" the participants are asked "È la tua risposta definitiva? La accendiamo?" when they have to choose their answer. That literally means "Is that your final answer? Shall we "light it"?" (the verb accendere = to light / turn on is used since the selected answer is displayed in yellow).
Risponda is a conjugated form (imperative and subjunctive) of the verb rispondere (to answer/respond).
Risposta is a noun meaning answer, response, reply.
La risposta semplice.
The simple answer.
More obscure uses of risposta are as the feminine past participle form of rispondere. Also as conjugated forms of the verb rispostare (to move/transfer/slide again/back). Good luck finding any examples of either of those.
