In my point of view,

SHRINK means: To become smaller permanently.
EXPAND means: To extend something permanently.
STRETCH means: To extend something temporarily & then after sometime it gets back its own shape.

Expand means - increase in all directions.
Shrink means - reduce in all directions.
Stretch means - increase linearly or in unidirectional or bidirectional but not in all directions.

Stretching is an action that requires external force while Shrinking does not. So the answer should be expand.

Contract and stretch need external force while shrink and expand don't need.
