The meaning for 1c same as 1b?

No. 1c can mean the same as both 1a and 1b. In other words, you can say it while the person is still waiting or after the waiting is finished.

Thanks CliveEmotion: big smile
I've the same question but I still don't understand one thing. Why we don't need gerund (ing) after the word "for"? Sorry for keeping you waiting? I always heard people say "sorry for keep you waiting."

sorry for keepING you waiting - is correct

But what kind of people were saying the contrary?
