This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Both examples are correct; both would be correct without the "that". But there are many questions about that on this site; yours is a duplicate. – Mr Lister Oct 25 '12 at 7:52
  • In this case "that" is synonymous with "which". – SF. Oct 25 '12 at 7:57

Both your examples are grammatical. However, that may be omitted from this kind of relative clause when, as in your examples, it is the object.

(You will see that I have edited the title of your question. It’s important to learn the difference between the present participle (confusing) and the past participle (confused).
