Given equation of the ellipse is $\large\frac{x^2}{64}+\frac{y^2}{100}$=1.
Comparing the equation with standard equation, $\large\frac{x^2}{a^2}+\frac{y^2}{b^2}$=1.
we get $a=8$ and $b=10$.
Since $a < b$, $a^2=b^2(1-e^2)$
Foci are $S(0,be)$ and $S'(0,-be)$
$\Rightarrow\:Vertices =(0,b)\: and \:(0,-b)$
Vertices are $ (0,10) \:and\: (0,-10)$
Hence (a) is the correct answer.
