Archery Quiz Puzzle

Near the Jolly Quiz Master is an archery club, and one evening four of the members were having a post-competition drink. We overheard their post-match analysis, as it were, and it seemed to have been a very odd result.

From what we could gather they had been shooting at a four-ringed target, with seven points for a bullseye, five points for an inner, three points for a magpie, and one point for an outer.

Very oddly, archer A had not hit the bullseye, but had hit all the other rings; archer B had not registered an inner, but had hit all the other rings; archer C had got everything but a magpie; and archer D had not hit an outer, but had registered scores in all the other rings. No one had missed with any arrow.

This seemed very odd, but stranger still they had all scored 30 points.

Intrigued by all this we spent a couple of pints trying to work out the archers' scoring, and we'll leave you with this question: how many bullseyes were scored by the archer who got three magpies?

As usual you can post the answers as a comment on this website, reply to the post on Facebook, or retweet or reply on Twitter @quizmastershop.
