Option A is correct. We Can't use about in front of discussed.

The grammatical error in the sentence "We discussed the problem so thoroughly" is the use of "about. ".

Here's the correction:

Original: We discussed the problem so thoroughly.
Corrected: We discussed the problem so thoroughly.

In English, the verb "discuss" typically takes the direct object of the thing being discussed, not "about" followed by the object.

When we used to discuss, there was no need to use about, so the right answer was option A.

Correct me, if I am wrong.

C is not correct because "discuss" is a transitive verb. Therefore it does not require a preposition.
