    Hi

    Discuss is a transitive verb. It is followed by a direct object. You can say either discuss or speak about, but not discuss about.

    e.g. We discussed the problem when we met last week.

    discuss:
    To speak with another or others about; talk over.
    To examine or consider (a subject) in speech or writing.

    P.S. When you ask a question, say :

    I`d like to ask you a question please, or Please, give me an explanation regarding...
    You have to address both the teachers and the members of this site in a respectful manner.
