Here's what I get.

Explanation:

As a weak base, #"CH"_3"NH"_2# in involved in an equilibrium reaction with water.

It removes a proton from the water, converting the water to its conjugate base, #"OH"^"-"#.

The equation is

#underbrace("CH"_3"NH"_2"(aq)")_color(red)("base") + underbrace("H"_2"O(l)")_color(red)("acid") ⇌ underbrace("CH"_3"NH"_3^"+""(aq)")_color(red)("conjugate acid") + underbrace("OH"^"-""(aq)")_color(red)("conjugate base")#
