Whenever i checkout and checkin excel files using sharepoint, it asks me for a major and minor version number.

I don't want to assign any version number to the excel document during checkout and checkin.

How do i do that in sharepoint.

Library Settings - Versioning Settings.  Turn off versioning.

When i select the file, I see a drop down with options: View Properties/ Edit Properties/ Delete/ Version History
Delete All Versions/ Delete Minor Versions/ Delete Major Versions.

I don't see any Settings Menu --> List Settings --> General Settings --> version settings
or
Library Settings - Versioning Settings.  Turn off versioning.

How do i get it?

You didn't specify what version of SharePoint, so I'll assume 2010.  Up in the ribbon you should see a tab for Library.  On this tab is where you'll see the Library Settings button.

Not possible. The screenshot you have shown seems to need admin privileges.

If you don't have full access to the library/site, you can't turn off versioning.

I've answered your question on how to disable versioning.  If you don't have proper access, there is no getting around it.
