Difference between berubah and mengubah - prefix used:
"ber" - adding this prefix to verb, noun or adjective root words results in a verb that often means "being something, having something, having a certain attribute" or "indicating a state of being or condition"
"me" - Attaching one of the prefixes from this group to a verb root word doesn't change the meaning of the verb but gives the new verb a sense of having the main focus of the sentence on the actor and not on the action or the object of the action
Not only is it incorrect English but also him instead of her is not accepted.
I am wondering whether verb mengubah has to be always in use with menjadi. Anyone knows?
Is the "menjadi" obligatory here? Would the sentence be correct without it?
I chose "correctly" because it seemed the only way to make some sense but I agree with other commentators that this is an odd construction.
