symmetry of CloudHSM & KMS

in the CloudHSM lesson, KMS is depicted as "symmetric & asymmetric" (see the comparision table). However, in the summery lesson, KMS is depicted as only "symmetric". Please clarify.

The test is worse than that. I suggest spending time reading all about how AWS KMS CMKs work, and potentially integrate with AWS HSMs, or custom on prem crypto services that perform various subsets of the overall cryptographic operations…. generate material here, put it there, rotate it this way, encrypt it over there, decrypt it upside down, etc….my test was crypto heavy
