    i think it is foci because they mark the points on a curve correct?

    Well, that would be an incorrect answer. Since we are asked for a quality only the hyperbola has. Foci is a notable point that the parabola, the elipse and the hyperbola posses.

    Okay, so we can discard the option of "Foci". What conic has vertex, for example?

    an ellipse has a vertex

    Yes, and so does the parabola, but then we must discard the "vertex" option.

    Asymptotes are also on a ellipse so it has to be minor axis right?

    Well, an elipse as a minor axis, and so does the hyperbola. But the elipse does not have asymptotes,
