  3. Correct – product extension strategy is a marketing method which seeks to increase sales/extends the maturity stage/prevents decline in sales of an existing product. An example of product extension strategies, e.g. modification, re-packaging, re-branding. Lego bricks are the original products and therefore cannot be a product extension strategy.
