If you notice in your screenshot you'll see the partitions you wish to extend are FAT32 whilst your main partition (the one with windows on is NTFS). Try formating the partitions into NTFS and then extending.

I appericiate your approach but there should be a possibility of extend option between the other two drives that are in FAT32 then why didn't it work in that case

The two drives shown are logical drives within an extended partition. You need to:

1. Delete each of the two logical drives.

2. Delete the extended partition. You can then:

3. Extend the main partition to use all of the freed space.
