Clarification Of Sample Question

Can you clarify something for me about this question which is taken from the study guide, section 2, organisations and structures: 
Explain 3 examples of a matrix organisation structure when used in a project environment. 
Can you tell me what is meant by ‘explain 3 examples’? Does this mean they are asking for 3 examples of (either real or hypothetical) organisations that operate a matrix organisation structure? Or are they asking for 3 examples of the characteristics of a matrix organisation structure?
