    Let's take your choices one at a time.

    Adjective phrase? No.
    It doesn't tell which, what kind of, or how many. It doesn't modify a noun.

    Independent clause? No.
    It can't stand by itself.

    Prepositional phrase? Yes.
    After is a preposition. There is no verb in this group of words. Discussion is the object of the preposition.

    It doesn't have a verb.
