Q: Difficult to engage 2nd gear on 2007 Honda Fit

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
All the gear shifts are smooth except engaging from gear 1 to gear 2. I've stepped on the clutch fully and also tried stepping on the clutch a few times trying to engage gear 2. What can be wrong?

With your engine off, try shifting 1-2. If it is ok it is a clutch issue, if not ok, it is a transmission issue.
However, 1 out of 10 times, the gear can shift smoothly from 1 to 2. I was told it's possible that the synchromesh is the culprit. Is there any other tests that I can do?
