Answer:

The answer is B. "However" is a conjunctive adverb that introduces a statement/idea that contradicts what has just been said. "For example" (A) means that what follows will demonstrate the rule, rather than break it. "As such" (C) has to do with defining what just came previously, but we're not defining were showing how a pattern has been broken. "Moreover" (D) is used to add empphasis to an example or anargument.
