What is your purpose for wanting to use this extension cord?

The extension cord (depending on it's connectors) is either for 120 or 240 volts. The circuit you have is 120/240 volts. The x and y are the hot wires.

You'll need to get a #10/4 conductor cord to install correctly.
I assuming that this cord and plug is for your dryer. Is your receptacle in the wall 4 wire receptacle? When you have the right cord then hook your wires accordingly:

x=black
y=red
z=white
g=green /ground.

jamead told you what you need. You need a different cord. You CANNOT use that cord at all.
