vertex

The apex is located above the centre of the base.

pyramid and coneIn the list given, only the cone and pyramid have a vertex.

The slant height of a square pyramid is always perpendicular to the base. It is form the top vertex all the way down to the most center of one side of the base edge.

A pyramid has a polygonal base with all other sides being triangles. As the Egyptians famously demonstrated, a common pyramid has a square base with four triangles meeting at a vertex, but any polygon - regular or irregular - can be used as the base of such a polyhedron.

A regular pyramid has an equilateral triangle base, not just a regular polygon. It has an apex above the centre of the base.

Vertex

In general, an octagonal pyramid is a pyramid with an octagon for a base and triangles (which all have a common vertex) for sides. The octagon my or may not be a regular one.

The apex.

A "pyramid" in geometry is a solid whose base is a polygon (many sided planar figure) and a vertex (a single point where all the triangular faces meet).The base of a regular pyramid is a polygon whose sides all have the same length.As such a pyramid can have any number of faces.An equilateral pyramid (with all sides - including the sides meeting at the vertex - has sides of the same length) is necessarily regular and can have 4, 5, or 6 sides if the base is a triangle, square or pentagon.The equilateral triangular pyramid is also called a regular tetrahedron.

The apex is located above the centre of the base.

Yes. This vertex is also known as the apex.
