List of available tissues we can list: Simple squamous epi, Simple cuboidal epi, Simple columnar epi, stratified squamous epi, transitional epithelium, areolar conn, adipose, reticular, dense regular, dense irregular, elastic, hyaline cartilage, fibrocartilage, elastic cartilage, compact bone, blood connective tissue, skeletal muscle, smooth muscle, nervous tissue. Not all tissues will be used, but they must be listed from penetration to scapula.
The answer is actually incorrect. The first layer would be stratified squamous epithelium. You mentioned transitional epithelium and that is only found in the urinary bladder and allows for distention of the bladder as it contains both simple squamous and simple cuboidal.
