    You do have the extension - it's 0.095%. Note that it says the wire's length is increased by 0.095% - that's the extension.

    I believe that the 0.095% is the strain as it tells you that the wire's length increased by that amount. I think this means that 0.095%= (Extension/Original length)*100. So in order to find the strain, you will have to divide 0.095 by 100, and then multiply this by the young's modulus
