Breather tubes out of position

I lifted the tank on my 2013 glee. Apart from the two fuel tank breather tubes, there was a random breather/fuel tube with a moulded kink pointing in the air between the cylinders. I couldn't see where to connect it, although it appears to link back to the coolant tank breather pipe. Two questions...1. where should this pipe connect, and 2. Is there a correct position/order to connect the 2 fuel tank breather hoses... I'm now worried that previous owners may have popped off the tank and air box and mixed things up.

Thanks in advance to forum friends.

The overflow tube from the fuel cap well connects to coolant reservoir overflow tube so both can drain through the tube that takes either fluid down below the exhaust before releasing rainwater, overfilled fuel or or overfilled coolant on the ground. The other hose from the tank is the tank vent hose on California legal model. It goes to a tip over switch that closes the vent hose if the bike is dropped.

Thanks so much for the quick reply. I'm still confused... Should I have a 'spare' breather hose with nothing to connect to? I have a UK model.

You may need a vent tube to allow air to enter the drain piping. I don't have much further information.
