    I feel confused with this confusing situation.
    You are a confusing person (you make me feel confused).

    Thanks.

    The most commonly confusing words.

    This means that an individual word such as 'imflammable' can be confusing for people, who think it means, 'won't burn', as if, 'inflammable'.

    The most commonly confused words.

    This means that people confuse pairs of words, as in using 'mistake' when the appropriate word is 'error'; using "it's" when it should be 'its'; write 'born' when they mean 'borne' etc.
