I believe everything which ISAA_Archer said is correct except of (d). The Gold center section has two ring inside of it. The smaller one is the compound ring and is a ten if it touches the line. The larger ring is the recurve or stick's 10 ring. The remainder of the gold or yellow is 9 points then the other rings are scored 8,7,6,5,4,3,2 and 1. If the arrow touches the line it is scored the higher value.
PM Jim C, he is a coach for FITA and should be able to explain the olympic organization or JOAD or ask this question under the FITA section.

For d.) Deezlin and John are both correct, depends on what round you are shooting. Indoors, Deezlin's description is correct - compound scores the smaller of the 2 circles as 10, rest of gold 9 and recurve scores the larger of the 2 inner rings as 10 with remaining gold as9. Outdoors both disciplines, recurve and compound, score the larger of the inner rings in the gold as 10 and remainder 9.
For f.) a ranking round is shot first, i.e. a full FITA or a 72/144 arrow rannking round (70m). Archers are ranked 1-64, or 1-32, etc.. The OR (Olympic Round) then pits the archers in head to head competition. For 64 archers the first match (1/64) consists of 3 ends of 6 arrows (18 total) shot at 70m on the 122cm target face. Winner advances to the 1/32 round. For the 1/32 round another 18 arrow match is shot, same guidelines as the 1/64. Winner advances to the 1/16 round where, again, another 18 arrow match is contested. Winners advance to the 1/8 round (8 archers remaining at this point). I believe at this point the round then changes to a 12 arrow match shot in 4 ends of 3 arrows (memory a little foggy since its been awhile since I last got this far, lol ). Winners advance to the semi-finals (4 archers now remaining). The 12 arrow match is then repeated. Winners then advance to the gold/silver medal match and the non-winners advance to the bronze medal match. Medal matches are also determined using the 12 arrow match, however, I believe the procedure changes slightly with the archers alternating shots (40 sec. allowed per archer/arrow) instead of just shooting all 3 within the proscribed time limit.
Hope any of this helps..................
