    The correct answer options are all transitional words. "Furthermore," "In addition," and "Also" are used to add information or ideas to a previous statement. "First" is used to indicate the first point or step in a sequence. "Hello" is not a transitional word and does not connect ideas or add information, so it is not a correct answer option.
