Why is “melupakan” not acceptable ? As we are having a “me-kan” lesson here I expected “melupakan” to be the choice instead of “lupa”.
"Melupakan" implies a deliberate action, such as "Saya ingin melupakan masa lalu saya" (I want to forget my past).
Good to know , many thanks !
Strange I asked my neighbor who is a local. The sentence: saya melupakan memasukan kucingnya di rumah has the same meaning
