why 'discuss about' is grammatically wrong?
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.
To speak with another or others about; talk over.
To examine or consider (a subject) in speech or writing.
