    [+ (that)]

    When I search 'verify' word in Cambridge dictionary I found English definition of “verify”


    verify

    verb [T] /ˈver.ɪ.faɪ/
    [+ (that)] Under interrogation, she verified (that) the tapes were authentic.

    My question is, what does '(that)' show here?

    I think this means above sentence could be written in both following ways

    Under interrogation, she verified the tapes were authentic.
    Under interrogation, she verified that the tapes were authentic.

    Dear Sir
    Please tell if I am thinking right.

    Re: [+ (that)]

    You are thinking right.

    Note that no form of address is necessary here. 'Dear Sir' is particularly inappropriate as some of the best answers are given by females.
