    Re: topic

    1. Their discussion is off-topic.
    This is fine, and I think it is the most usual way of these three to characterize this event.

    2. Their disucssion is off the topic.
    > discussion is spelled with a typo
    > This is okay. The grammar is fine and anyone would understand you.


    3.Their discussion deviate from the topic.
    > This is the wrong verb tense
    > Possibly the speaker wants to say
    "Their discussion deviates from the topic all the time."
    > Or possibly the speaker wants to say
    "Their discussion has deviated from the topic."
