What is the difference between "dibutuhkan" and "diperlukan"?


I checked both words and there doesn't appear to be any difference in meaning or use.


I got answers from native speakers. "Dibutuhkan" involves stronger and more urgent necessity. One of the native speakers provided sample sentences including an euphemism. Please check them out. https://hinative.com/ja/questions/18283122

And as @UpzahwvW pointed out, this sentence is too harsh. Grammatically correct, but socially incorrect. Why doesn't Duolingo simply remove "tidak" to convert the whole context into a positive sentence?


Truly, this is one of the most heartbreaking and/or shaming messages that a man can hear.
