That the two Events have the same "identifier" (database ID, or UUID) means it was manually copied in the Finder. Big no-no.
The ones that have (fcp 1) and (fcp2) at the ends of the name were created inside FCP X by selecting the original and "Duplicating" it.
I'd have to see detials inside each Event to konw for sure, but here is how I'd fix it. Follow these instructions in the user manual about Merging Events to put them all together in one Event, and avoid the confusion.
Next, as for backing up, the duplicated database ID issue must be addressed. Here's an article I wrote, approved by Bombich Software, about how to use Carbon Copy Cloner to do backups properly for FCP X specifically.
And some extra info just FYI.

If you right/control click on the event and choose "Reveal in Finder" then you would be able to see which events is linked to which. You can then temporarily move any other out of the events folder. You can also view the movie files in the finder and decide which ones you want to use without using FCPX initially.

Do not move things inside the Events folder in the Finder! Move/trash things inside FCP X. The database has to be updated, or you could run into some major headaches. Simply do the "merge" and anything duplicated will be taken care of.

Did you do as Hisham suggested? Find which files are being used. The other option is simply ignore it and carry. If it's working don't try to fix it.

Okay, I will sort it out. Thanks for all the help.
