  2. as
  3. so
  4. but

pls help me and pls explain. thank you very much!

Answer

Answer is (2).

Adam was late for school as he had missed the school bus. (“as” – to state the reason)

For the other options, need to change the sentence as follows.
Adam would be late for school if he missed the school bus. (“if” – to say that one thing might happen depending on another thing happening)

Adam had missed the school bus so he was late for school. (“so” – to show the result of something)

Adam had missed the school bus but he was not late for school. (“but” – to show contrast)
