I am trying to extend a line, but for some reasons, it does not select the line that I am aiming to extend; instead it selects the line below the aimed line! Please advise.

Please respect the best practices and specify what do you use and its exact version (e.g. build number).
Also, in the discussed case, provide information what tool or key-in you use to extend the line, because several different options exist.

Overlapping elements are usually selected in the same order they are stored in DGN file, but I think there is not publicly defined rule.
A selection can be "rotated" in different way, but the most typical way (as mwlong wrote already) to select "some" element using data point (left mouse button) and not the right one is selected, to use reset (right mouse button) to ask MicroStation to try to select another one in location tolerance.
Another option is to use Tab key, but it is better when snap points should be changed and also it also requires an interaction with keyboard, whereas data point / reset mechanism is "mouse only" (and so simpler and quicker) way ;-)
