Hello,teachers! Which sentence has the same meaning as this one?

She added that having conversation with friends was not helpful at all.

1 She said that having conversation with friends was not helpful at all.
2 She said again that having conversation with friends was not helpful at all.

Thank you!

Neither really- adding is giving extra information, which is not expressed by said and does not involve repetition, so said again doesn't work.

'she added that.... ' has a different meaning...

It somewhat equals to "Furthermore/in addition/moreover, she said.... "

:lol:
