What is the difference between a noun phrase and a noun clause? This says to change box b into noun phrases to match box A.
Example: I can't get over... I hear her rude comments.
I can't get over hearing her rude comments.
But in this section of the book, it explaines this as a clause.

clause is a part of a sentence which has its own subject and object.
predicate is that part of a sentence which does not make a complete sense of its own but either has a subject or a predicate.
noun clause and noun phrase both work as a noun in the sentence.

"I can't get over hearing her rude comments."
The underlined part is a gerund phrase. You are correct that it is not a clause. Here's an example of a noun clause (underlined):
I can't stand whoever makes such rude comments.
This is incorrect:
"predicate is that part of a sentence which does not make a complete sense of its own but either has a subject or a predicate."
Here is a good explanation with examples:
