The thing to understand here is that everyone throws until they miss. So if you got 5 throws, that means you hit the target 4 times, and missed on your 5th throw. So the only people who missed the target on their 1st throw are the 7 people who only had one throw. Since there were 25 people overall, and only 7 missed on their first throw, I is true.

II is also true: Everyone had exactly 1 miss. Since more people had at least 1 hit than people had 0 hits, you know there were more hits than misses overall.

III is also true. If anyone hit the target 5 times, they would have had at least 6 throws, since hitting the target the 5th time would mean you get to throw again. Since the highest number of throws was 5, that highest number of hits was 4.
