[D]. No error.

Answer: Option A


We discussed the problem so thoroughly

Darshan said: (Oct 21, 2010)  
A is perfect. But what about c ?

Shouldn't it be " that I found very easy to work it out" ?

Vivekuk777 said: (Nov 15, 2010)  
Can anyone tell me why A is the ans ?

Hari said: (Nov 23, 2010)  
"about" in this sentence is not needed ...

Purush said: (Dec 8, 2010)

Giri said: (Dec 14, 2010)  
After the words such as describe or discussion there is no need using of word "about".

Teja said: (Dec 16, 2010)  
We don't use "about" after discuss and describe

Murugesh said: (Dec 31, 2010)  
Is option C correct?

Prateek said: (Jan 3, 2011)  
I agree with niklesh.

Sakthi said: (Jan 8, 2011)  
I agree with teja, but why not saatisfy in c anyone know to the ans means tell me...

Ashok said: (Jan 11, 2011)  
Please let me know, why 'c' is correct? can any one explain the grammar rules?

Angaiahpandian said: (Jan 20, 2011)  
I think No need to write "so" before "thoroughly".

Mmmmmm said: (Feb 2, 2011)  
It seems most of them are guessing. If you have any rule just say me where you found.

Vinay said: (Feb 8, 2011)  
Yeah A is correct

Zahid said: (Feb 24, 2011)  
Yeah option A is correct because when we disscus any matter, and we know the problem no need to use 'About'.

Siya Shah said: (Feb 26, 2011)  
I feel that option A is error free coz about here means "in regard to".

Ragapriya said: (Mar 16, 2011)  
Actualy 'thoroughly' itself indicates that it is perfect and no need of saying 'so thoroughly' it seems an error there.

Prasanna said: (Mar 18, 2011)  
"So" and "about",both are unnecessary in this sentence..

Shaswati said: (Mar 22, 2011)  
Hari is right. No need of about in option A.

Suresh said: (Mar 26, 2011)  
I think "so" is not requied.

Monika said: (Apr 10, 2011)  
It is right, but before examination need to use "an", a vowel...isnt it?

Chetan said: (May 10, 2011)  
Give me brief explaination.

Vivek Pandey said: (Jun 9, 2011)  
Option a is correct.

And the sentence will be " we discussed the problem throughly".

Niklesh Raut said: (Jun 17, 2011)  
"about" is use before any topic so it is in right place but thoroughly @ means complete but not deeply.

So there no need to write "so".

Ravi said: (Jul 4, 2011)  
Thoroughly means "so many times" like that then there is no need 2 use so again.

Ronish said: (Jul 5, 2011)  
But don't you guys think c can also be the right answer ?

Soujanya said: (Aug 3, 2011)  
No need of using "so" & "about" in sentence 1.

Knp said: (Aug 7, 2011)  
Need not use "so" ans is "a".

Rinky said: (Aug 8, 2011)  
Answer:option A.

"about"is not needed in the sentence.

Amit Thakral said: (Aug 20, 2011)  
Option a is correct.

Because no need to use 'about' after discuss, also no need of so before thoroughly. Because its already so many times.

The correct is "we discussed the problem thoroughly".

Iftikhar Hussain said: (Aug 21, 2011)  
Can any one tell me all the grammatical rules & their exceptions used to solve out these types of questions. I really need help B'coz I don't know any of the such rules & their corresponding exceptions used in english grammer. Reply soon. Waiting.

Thakur Kunwar Singh said: (Aug 28, 2011)  
"About", identifies a topic. In option A, "problem" is specific and does not denote a topic. Hence option A is correct. Option C is not concise but it is grammatically correct.

Dhanasekaran said: (Aug 28, 2011)  
Can anyone tell why A is the answer?

Vyshu said: (Sep 12, 2011)  
The word "about" is no need in that sentence.

Rohan Thapa said: (Sep 13, 2011)  
Answer is A because Discuss/describe/illustrate is never followed by "About".

Girija said: (Sep 22, 2011)  
I agree that it is not needed to use "so" before "thoroughly"... why is it so that should not use "about" when "discuss" comes?

Sangavee Pm said: (Sep 24, 2011)  
That's because when we write the sentence as"we discussed the problem thoroughly" the meaning of the sentence is clearly understood. There is no need of 4 us to use "about" or "so". They don't add any extra meaning to the sentence.

Kannan said: (Sep 26, 2011)  
How ans A is correct?

Soniya said: (Sep 28, 2011)  
Can anyone tell me all grammatical rules used for solving these type of problems please reply soon ?

Sachin said: (Oct 13, 2011)  
I think No need to write "so" before "thoroughly".

Vamsi said: (Oct 13, 2011)  
According to their situtation 'so' not necessary to use in that.

Raw1 said: (Oct 13, 2011)  
When 1 person is telling that the use of "so" is incorrect, then why others giving the same answers? do they want to publish their name?

Dolly said: (Nov 4, 2011)  
Througly means we done smthing many time continuosly so don't need to use "so".

Vijaykumardk said: (Nov 18, 2011)  
I need tips for to find error in sentences.

Brajesh Garg said: (Dec 7, 2011)  
The word "about" and "so"are no need in that sentence.

Nerd said: (Dec 18, 2011)  
"Let's discuss about the issues" Not correct. You could say 'Let's have a discussion about the issues'.

Bbreddy said: (Dec 22, 2011)  
Can you tell me why we don't use about in sentence a?

Ishita Dhingra said: (Dec 27, 2011)  
The word "thoroughly" is complete in itself that there is no use of writing "so" with it.

Jegan said: (Jan 4, 2012)  
Hi the option is A is correct. Since revert back, discussing about etc are commonly called as "Indianism" in corporates ( as i am working in that). It like repeating twice time and commonly used in indian english.

As in the example "revert back the email", here revert the email simply does the meaning. However revert and back gives most similar meanings.

Prachi Gupta said: (Jan 5, 2012)  
Should not use 'so' before thoroughly.

Ramjeevan said: (Jan 26, 2012)  
"about" is not needed here. That's why.

Monisha.Mpattukkottai said: (Feb 8, 2012)  
'about' refers to the topic only not for discussion of any matter. Any one tell me a grammatical rules soon ?

Sumita said: (Feb 29, 2012)  
In option A 'so' is correct because it is used as 'so that' clause. Read the complete sentence, you will get it.

Sumita said: (Feb 29, 2012)  
In option A 'so' is correct because it is used as 'so that' clause. Read the complete sentence, you will get it.

Archana said: (Mar 18, 2012)  
Yes about is not required.

Sushma said: (Apr 1, 2012)  
I don't know how to correct the grammer, could you help me ?

Karthik said: (Apr 23, 2012)  
"So" is not required before 'thoroughly'.

Already thoroughly states a subject is briefly analyzed. Hence So is not required.

Dharma said: (May 13, 2012)  
How A hving error please tell me

Arshad said: (Jun 1, 2012)  
Thoroughly itself describes the sentence as superlative and we need not place So infront of thoroughly

Andal Priyadharshini said: (Aug 24, 2012)  
"We discussed about the problem so thoroughly". In this sentence,we don't need to say "so".

Ali said: (Aug 27, 2012)  
According to Grammatical rule,if any thing is unknown in discussion,then we use 'about' ,in 2nd case if our problem is already known then we do not 'about'.

Rameez Ahmed said: (Nov 13, 2012)  
In grammar, remember this discusses as a verb does not take preposition "about" and for your further reference please see oxford advanced learner's.

Test said: (Dec 1, 2012)  
"We discussed about the problem so thoroughly". In this sentence, we don't need to say "so".

Shivi said: (Dec 29, 2012)  
Discuss/describe/illustrate is never followed by "About".

Ramya said: (Feb 17, 2013)  
She is an European is wrong sentence?

Pawan said: (Apr 7, 2013)  
@Shivi is right we don't use about just after the discuss/describe/illustrate.

Nameless said: (May 4, 2013)  
Yes. Since "European" is a word starting with a "Consonant sound (ya)", it must only be "a European".

Arif said: (Jul 10, 2013)  
The verb is usually followed by a direct object, rather than by a preposition so "about (preposition) " after "discuss (verb) " is incorrect.

Rajendra Lamror said: (Jul 26, 2013)  
The word "thoroughly" is complete in itself that there is no use of writing "so" with it.

Sunny said: (Aug 5, 2013)  
About in the sentence is not needed its an unnecessary word therefore a is the answer.

Navya said: (Aug 18, 2013)  
Can anyone say why option C is not the answer?

Maddy Singh said: (Aug 22, 2013)  
As per the concept, the word, "about" is not required. We need to use, about if the verb is, "Talk" instead of discuss. Discuss = Talk about.

Sharath said: (Sep 10, 2013)  
Problem means that should be about. Then why we need to put again a word 'about'. So that's answer. !

Ashish said: (Sep 17, 2013)  
Guys there is two event happening so the 1st should be in past perfect and later one in simple past.

Hariteja said: (Sep 24, 2013)  
You should not use the words so and thoroughly at a time so its wrong hence option is correct because it is a mistake.

Sudha said: (Oct 10, 2013)  
Can anyone tell me grammatical rules to solve this type of problems?

Bhanu said: (Nov 6, 2013)  
Where can I get the tips for answering such questions?

Vaishu said: (Nov 22, 2013)  
What about option C? and I need explanation.

Sangeetha said: (Nov 25, 2013)  
Can anyone explain detaily why A is correct?

Suresh said: (Dec 1, 2013)  
Anyone tell how to make sentence, I don't know how to find out the answer because I don't know the making sentence correctly.

Sriranjan G said: (Dec 6, 2013)  
The reason why "A" is correct is, We should not use "About" immediately after the following.

Discuss, describe, mention, explain, state, remark.

Kaushik Sagi said: (Dec 25, 2013)  
I agree with option A but what about C - the sentence is completely wrong. Can you justify it.

Bhasker Seethala said: (Feb 20, 2014)  
There are two words 'it' which should may not be needed. Justify this?

Riya said: (Feb 21, 2014)  
I think, they should provide the errors of that sentences!

Tharani said: (Mar 3, 2014)  
We discussed the problem thoroughly is the right answer, because discuss and about have the same meaning.

Umesh Khurana said: (Mar 12, 2014)  
After word 'discuss' we use about when we talking about the history of anything. Here we can't use about. For example.

I discuss English mean any topic of English and.

I discuss about English mean about the history of english.

Abinaya said: (Apr 2, 2014)  
Why option A is correct. What about option C. I need explanation.

Vivian said: (Apr 27, 2014)  
The right sentence in this case should be #we discussed the problem thoroughly#.

Nandu said: (May 1, 2014)  
Why about is wrong in that sentence?

J K said: (May 19, 2014)  
Anyone tell how to make sentence, I don't know how to find out the answer because I don't know the making sentence correctly.

Reddy said: (Jun 11, 2014)  
Discuss = describing object.

About = character of object.

Those are nearly similar meaning. So, no need to use one after another.

Vikas said: (Jun 29, 2014)  
Discuss is a transitive verb and therefore takes a direct object. We need not use any word after discuss.

Venkat said: (Jul 11, 2014)  
We use about after noun, but not after the verb.

Abhi said: (Jul 14, 2014)  
If you guys notice the options carefully you can see that the first three options constitutes one complete sentence. So the correct sentence would be "We discussed the problem so thoroughly on the eve of the examination that I found it very easy to work it out.".

Therefore "about" is totally not required whereas "so" is required which makes the first option incorrect.

Arun said: (Aug 23, 2014)  
Please let me know the correct sentence of "Every group of birds that fly to the breeding ground will have an equal number of males and females. ".

Krishna said: (Sep 16, 2014)  
Why about is not correct?

Sam said: (Sep 23, 2014)  
IRONY- a test on grammar, which has a grammatical error in the question.

Rakesh said: (Oct 3, 2014)  
Can any one tell me why the answer is A, but we must use 'was' as the sentence 'c' is in the past form?

Shirisha Reddy said: (Oct 20, 2014)  
Please can any one tell me why the answer is A, please tell me with grammatical rules.

Sumit said: (Oct 28, 2014)  
'so' & 'thoroughly' can't go side by side.

Haroon Rashid said: (Oct 31, 2014)  
As per rules, you can write "we have a discussion about the matter", but you cannot write "we discussed about the matter". Simply write we "discuss the matter".

Chandru said: (Dec 1, 2014)  
I think after discussion or describe we won't use the about.

Jumaila said: (Dec 16, 2014)  
I think its "so thoroughly'. Why to use SO before thoroughly. When thoroughly itself stresses the sentence.

Ripudaman Singh said: (Jan 2, 2015)  
Hi all option there is no error in option C as there is an adverb clause of result that's why so is correct here for example.

He worked so hard that he passed.

Newthinking said: (Jan 3, 2015)  
Yes, about is not needed?

Sreevidya said: (Jan 5, 2015)  
Yes, option A is correct. There is no need to use 'about' in the sentence.

Soundharya said: (Jan 5, 2015)  
About is never followed by discussed.

Tamil said: (Jan 10, 2015)  
There is no need of about and so words.

Vijay said: (Jan 19, 2015)  
In option A so is write because it is a descriptive word.

Sarath Sivan said: (Feb 16, 2015)  
Ya guys your correct i also see error in option C. But actually I didn't under stand what's wrong in A. Please tell me.

Shok said: (Feb 25, 2015)  
So is used is incorrect.

Brijesh said: (Mar 14, 2015)  
In option C "it" used two times. Don't you guys think about C.

Jimmy said: (Mar 29, 2015)  
Hi guys, can you please tell me whats wrong in option A?

Pratik Kumar said: (May 1, 2015)  
I think option C is incorrect.

That I found it is very easy to work it out.

Christin Devasia said: (May 12, 2015)  
Option A is wrong because "There is no need of adding "about" before "discuss".

I think option C is also wrong because the usual expression is "I found it very easy to work out".

Santosh said: (Jun 6, 2015)  
Thoroughly itself means completely no need to use so in front of it.

Karthik said: (Jun 29, 2015)  
So, about and thoroughly is common in this sentence, but we concentrated problem of eve exam checking which one method is good.

In this all are not found the solution anyone given then 'I' must or about doesn't come before 'discuss'.

Bharathikoppaka said: (Jul 5, 2015)  
How to find errors and any rules or any book for this?

Priyanka said: (Aug 4, 2015)  
After discuss and describe about should not be used. After called as should not be used.

Sakthi said: (Aug 7, 2015)  
How to find errors and any rules or any book for this?

If there is anything for reference please send to my mail friends.

Vetri said: (Aug 8, 2015)  
Is there any books for solving this type of questions?

Veerwal Arun said: (Aug 17, 2015)  
Why option C is not incorrect despite it comes 2 times in option C?

Abhinav Sinha said: (Sep 6, 2015)  
There is no need of about in the sentence.

Kunal said: (Sep 7, 2015)  
Answer A is correct guys, 'so' is not needed before thoroughly.

Kamalakar Y said: (Sep 8, 2015)  
Keeping 'so' in the sentence is correct. The Full sentence is "We discussed the problem so thoroughly on the eve of the examination that I found it very easy to work it out" This is regarding "SO THAT" usage. Hence, A is correct answer.

Sangeetha said: (Sep 12, 2015)  
I have one doubt. Please the check sentence.

"Our is the only country in the world than can boast of unity".

Shudharshni said: (Sep 14, 2015)  
Thoroughly itself means perfect so there is no need for 'so'.

Namrata said: (Sep 15, 2015)  
I read multiple answer please some one say exact answer.

Sachin J said: (Sep 16, 2015)  
So which answer is perfectly option A OR C.

Satyam Mishra said: (Sep 22, 2015)  
Please tell me why "about" is not perfect in this sentence.

Krishnakanth said: (Sep 28, 2015)  
Please tell me the exact answer!

Rajat Kumar said: (Sep 30, 2015)  
I am not understanding the question. Can anyone tell me what is the question actually?

Yazhini said: (Oct 1, 2015)  
How is C right?

Pooja said: (Oct 14, 2015)  
Why not "C"? Because I don't think that about in "A" is making much differences.

Vani said: (Oct 29, 2015)  
Give me some tips about sentence correction.

Yerappa said: (Nov 17, 2015)  
A is the perfect one. But no need of so before thoroughly.

Nalotha said: (Dec 25, 2015)  
Can you tell me how we can choose that option? Some specific words.

Sanju said: (Dec 28, 2015)  
Discuss is transitive verb, we need its object so it is always discuss something i.e. discuss why, discuss what, discuss how so on?

Mandar said: (Jan 6, 2016)  
"Describe" is to explain about and two "about" cannot be used. So, answer is C.

Amit Tiwary said: (Jan 28, 2016)  
Option: A.

Here "About" is not required as problem can't be followed by about.

Reza said: (Feb 12, 2016)  
All comments are ok. But no one clearly explain about C.

Sandy said: (Feb 26, 2016)  
Why B is not correct, we always go through it?

Shamim said: (Mar 8, 2016)  
Correct answer is (A). Because discuss doesn't take preposition.

Rashmiranjan Samal said: (Apr 2, 2016)  
Why is option C not a correct answer?

Sandip Nayak said: (Apr 7, 2016)  
What if "about" is following the problem then what answer me.

Ashish said: (Apr 9, 2016)  
I think "so" is wrong in this statement.

Dilip Kumar said: (Apr 13, 2016)  
I think "very" should be used in place of "so" in option A.

Anuj Kuntal said: (Apr 14, 2016)  
We can't use any preposition between transitive verb and object. So option A is the correct answer.

Kish said: (Jun 29, 2016)  
What about option c? Please explain that.

Bharat said: (Jul 19, 2016)  
Using of "so" is overflows.

Hari said: (Jul 19, 2016)  
How the option "a" is correct? Please explain.

Kusuma said: (Jul 25, 2016)  
No need of using "so".

Kundhana said: (Jul 27, 2016)  
Guys! I think no need of using about.

Sujithra Ramesh said: (Aug 1, 2016)  
I too think that 'c' is also the wrong one.

Neha said: (Aug 3, 2016)  
I think no need of "so".

Divya said: (Aug 5, 2016)  
What about "C"?

Ravishankar said: (Aug 11, 2016)  
Option C.

That I found very easy to work it out? whether "it" is necessary?

Sunil said: (Aug 14, 2016)  
The correct sentence should be like "We discussed the problem thoroughly", there is no need of "about" and "so".

Anitha said: (Aug 17, 2016)  
I think no need of using "about".

Ds Rathore said: (Aug 28, 2016)  
Very through can be written. There is no word like so through. As per grammar, A is the correct answer.

Md Namus Nawaz said: (Aug 30, 2016)  
Generally, such types of words like as signature, obey, disobey, marry, investigate, reach, resemble, attack, await, despite, discuss, order, comprise we don't use any preposition.

Vivek said: (Sep 3, 2016)  
I think, in place of "that" in option C "then" should come.

Yogabinnu said: (Sep 9, 2016)  
"About" and "So" is the mistakes of above sentence.

Anyone tell me that, after FOUND, IT is need or not?

Priyanka said: (Oct 6, 2016)  
Why don't use "about''? Please, anyone tells me a clear explanation.

Lawrence said: (Oct 7, 2016)  
I agree with anyone why says that 'so' isn't supposed to the following by 'thoroughly'. tho I believe 'about' can be used but it's not a must.

Option C is correct English.

Prasanna said: (Oct 15, 2016)  
What about option c, why it is not correct?

Raj said: (Oct 22, 2016)  
C is the correct answer because so is follows by as not that.

Som said: (Oct 28, 2016)  
Option A, is correct. There is no necessary to place the word "about "after the word discuss. Because the word discusses means to talk about sth.

Waqar Yousufi said: (Nov 15, 2016)  
Option A is correct. Because we do not need to put 'about'.

Sheetal said: (Nov 20, 2016)  
I think option C is correct. Because in this sentence we did not need 'it' after work.

Mayuri said: (Nov 27, 2016)  
I also go with option C.

Ravi said: (Nov 29, 2016)  
Eve means after or before the time of any incident that's the reason it does not the answer.

Imran said: (Nov 30, 2016)  
Option A is correct because we can't use so before thoroughly.

Shridhevi said: (Dec 6, 2016)  
Yes, "so" should not come before thoroughly.

Aryahi said: (Dec 7, 2016)  
Is option C correct? 'It' used twice. No need of 'It' before out.

Ravi said: (Dec 11, 2016)  
Why option A is correct? I am not getting, please explain in clear.

Rekha said: (Dec 13, 2016)  
I think option C is correct. In this sentence "It" used twice. There is no need of 'it' before out.

Ankush Roy said: (Dec 19, 2016)  
Yes, A is correct answer because about is need to hear.

Vikash said: (Dec 27, 2016)  
Why A is correct?

Abhinav Sinha said: (Jan 1, 2017)  
I think, So is not used here.

Neeti said: (Jan 2, 2017)  
In place of, so too should come.

Ramjay said: (Jan 2, 2017)  
After discuss about is not used that's why A is correct.

Dechen said: (Jan 2, 2017)  
I too think it is C. What's wrong with that?

Heena said: (Jan 4, 2017)  
Thoroughly mean explaining in detail. But why they have used so again?

Prbala said: (Jan 5, 2017)  
Why not B?

Manoj Kumar Gupta said: (Jan 12, 2017)  
If the first sentence is past indefinite then other can not be past indefinite that should be past perfect tense.

Hulk said: (Jan 13, 2017)  
C should also be included there is no need of "it" after work out. It should be "I found it easy to work out".

Bunty said: (Jan 26, 2017)  
"So" is the word. Which is not appropriate here.

Lucky said: (Feb 15, 2017)  
Why not C? Explain.

King Khan said: (Feb 17, 2017)  
We don't use' very' with 'much' and so is not used before thoroughly.

Vikrant said: (Mar 8, 2017)  
What about option C?

Roshan Kumar said: (Mar 18, 2017)  
Grammatically it's not advised to use about after.

Zakir Imam said: (Mar 27, 2017)  
Explain it for me. I'm not getting this.

S P Singh said: (Mar 28, 2017)  
Explain about the answer. What's rule applying in this?

Saran said: (Apr 23, 2017)  
Nice Explanations. Thank you all.

Hoqueazizul said: (May 1, 2017)  
Discussed doesn't take any preposition, resembles also but resemblance can take to.

Vaishnavi said: (May 4, 2017)  
Can someone please teach me how to find errors in a sentence? please reply as quick as possible I really need to know.

Megha said: (May 16, 2017)  
Discuss, demand, describe, tell, order, reach, resemble in that word do not follow any preposition.

Sunil said: (Jun 2, 2017)  
I think C have also the wrong sentence and grammatical words.

Deepika said: (Jun 11, 2017)  
Option A is correct as we don't need to use 'about' here. But there is no problem with 'so' in option A.

Gsk said: (Jun 19, 2017)  
It's not right to use 'about' after 'discuss' because the word discuss itself means to talk about 'something'/'someone'. And generally, we don't use 'so' before 'thoroughly' because itself means 'very much'.

I hope it'll help.

Anku said: (Jul 25, 2017)  
You are right @Giri.

Rajat said: (Jul 31, 2017)  
Option A is the incorrect sentence. But why not Option C?

Nidhi said: (Aug 17, 2017)  
Why not option c?

Suraja Kumar Pati said: (Aug 23, 2017)  
That I found it very easy to work it out--here it is very easy would be the answer but here " it very" is written. I think like this front of view my Opinion is that, it is also incorrect in grammatically. But whats other Opinion.

Kshitij said: (Sep 13, 2017)  
There is a redundancy error in "so thoroughly".

Vaibhav said: (Sep 13, 2017)  
It could be like.

We discussed about that answer so thoroughly.

Would have been right I guess.

Uma said: (Sep 27, 2017)  
Because thoroughly is already an adverb, and so add something so to comparative degrees are not valid.

Chikaodili.. said: (Oct 16, 2017)  
A is correct, talking about option C, it even start with lowercase which is also an error.

Ankit said: (Nov 25, 2017)  
"So" and " thoroughly " body are extreme kind of which should not be used together.

T.Divyasri said: (Jan 12, 2018)  
Given Explanation.

Rakesh said: (Feb 3, 2018)  
We don't use preposition before/after certain verbs investigate, discuss, ordered etc.

Akhil P Unnikrishnan said: (Feb 15, 2018)  
A as it is a superfluous statement, we don't need about.

Meeha said: (Mar 2, 2018)  
The word about should not come after the word discuss.

Arpan Kumar said: (Apr 14, 2018)  
Actually, it is the rule of English grammar that we can't use the word "about " with the "discuss ".

Ashok said: (Apr 17, 2018)  
A is correct. i.e, it has a grammatical mistake. So is not needed infront of thoroughly.

Waseem said: (Apr 26, 2018)  
Which is the correct answer? Please tell me.

Munjuluri Bhaskara Murty said: (May 1, 2018)  
C is also incorrect. Reason: In any sentence, same word should not be repeated.

B K Ganesh Charan said: (May 29, 2018)  
Is C correct? Please explain.

Gabbar Singh said: (Jun 2, 2018)  
I think option C is correct.

Diwakar said: (Jun 10, 2018)  
I think A is the correct answer because about is use to describe a wide correlated problem not problem for exam. 2nd is so decide the effort we have made to discuss.

Shubhangi Srivastava said: (Jul 25, 2018)  
No need of about after "discuss" because if we are discussing any matter so, It automatically means that we always discuss "about" the matter. "About" is Understood in this case So no Need to use "about.

Ciara said: (Aug 3, 2018)  
No need to use "so" before thoroughly.

Bhavya said: (Aug 30, 2018)  
I think option C is not correct.

Mohanapriya said: (Sep 14, 2018)  
I agree with you @ZAHID.

Dips said: (Jan 21, 2019)  
"About" is okay but "so" is unnecessary. The word "thoroughly" already explained the depth of that verb.

Kamson said: (Jan 22, 2019)  
Discussed : Past participle and past tense is the same. So whenever we have this fact about something done in the past, we use past per tense and past participle use have/has for any perfect tense. Also no need of "So" or "about".

Basant Singhal said: (Jan 22, 2019)  
Discuss is an intransitive verb, so it does not need a preposition such as about.
The use of so is ok here.
'discuss' 'reach' and 'order' are not followed by prepositions.

Renu said: (Jan 24, 2019)  
So & throughly both in one time can't be used.

San said: (Jan 30, 2019)  
I agree with your answer, thanks @Hari.

Md Ibrar said: (Mar 15, 2019)  
Good explanation. Thanks all.

Shubham said: (Apr 9, 2019)  
About not needed here.

Ratna Priya said: (Jun 25, 2019)  
A is not correct answer. Can anyone explain why A is correct?

Lavanya said: (Jun 27, 2019)  
Is it necessary to keep 'so' before throughly?

Irshad said: (Aug 23, 2019)  
Afer the words such as describe or discussion there is no need to use the word "about".

Biplab said: (Sep 14, 2019)  
But how discussed and found can be in the same sentence as both are past tense? Explain me.

Nisha said: (Oct 15, 2019)  
I think here A is the answer because it should be in present perfect tense.

i.e. We had discussed the problem so thoroughly.

Mubale Muke Chrispus said: (Oct 31, 2019)  
There is no need for "so" in Sentence A I only see C as the write, kindly Explain.

Merlin Sebi said: (Nov 10, 2019)  
Discuss means talk about so about won't come.

Mahadev said: (Jan 18, 2020)  
The rule is that transitive word do not use preposition when the direct object is started.

Transitive word ex loved, committed, admired etc.

Here the transitive word is discussed so "about" not be used.

Brijesh Kumar said: (Apr 11, 2020)  
It should be we had discussed.

Because the first action in past perfect and 2nd in past indefinite.

Nishanth said: (Jun 18, 2020)  
'about' is never used with the word 'discuss'.

I will discuss it-->correct.

I will discuss about it->wrong (no use of about with discuss).

Gajesh said: (Jun 22, 2020)  
Here used discussed it was committed about all of them whatever says thoroughly.

Suraj said: (Jun 26, 2020)  
About does not take article.

Khushi said: (Aug 12, 2020)  

In answer, it is given "so". It is correct or not? Please, anyone, tell me.

Harsh said: (Aug 14, 2020)  
Anyone tell me, why option c is not correct?

Prabhat Sachan said: (Aug 29, 2020)  
After the verb discussed preposition about is unnecessary.

Anu said: (Dec 23, 2020)  
why A? I am not getting. Please explain.

Moulee said: (Jan 5, 2021)  
Here "discussed " means "talking about". So I think again we need to mention "about".

Apoorva Thakre said: (Mar 27, 2021)  
Why "A" is the correct answer? Explain

Ram said: (Apr 11, 2021)  
Here "discussed" means past tense and so "thoroughly" means future tense (not done).

We use "discuss" for the correct sentence.

Mohammed Imran said: (Jun 29, 2021)  
No need to write "so" before "thoroughly".

So, A is the correct answer.

Jaya Chaudhari said: (Jul 18, 2021)  
No need to write about, so A is the correct answer.

Pallavi said: (Aug 2, 2021)  
Yeah, agree, A is the correct answer.

Adiba said: (Aug 10, 2021)  
If are we used the word discussed (verb) so after don't use prepositions.

So, option A is right.

Abhik Kumar Majhi said: (Aug 26, 2021)  
About is Redundant here. Am I right?

Please anyone clarify this.

Suresh said: (Sep 12, 2021)  
It is wrong because It should be in the present perfect tense.

Suresh said: (Sep 12, 2021)  
It is wrong because It should be in the present perfect tense.

Usha said: (Sep 26, 2021)  
How option B is correct? Explain.

Rabinarayan said: (Oct 26, 2021)  
We use "about" after "discussion" for example we had a long discussion about the problem.

But when we write"discuss", we don't use "about" after it.

For example: we discussed the problem.

Trick is : a discussion about something to discuss something.

Anand said: (Nov 15, 2021)  
Well said @Rabinarayan.

Vudutha Mahitha said: (Dec 4, 2021)  
No need of using "so" in that statement because "thoroughly" the word itself defines entirely.

Manisha said: (Dec 25, 2021)  

Here no need to write " about". Because we write "about" for some person or things and discuss is neither a person nor things.

Hrithik said: (Dec 29, 2021)  
Anyone explain the correct answer.
