The score is made up of two components - the execution score, which is scored by the judges on a scale of 1 - 10, and the difficulty score, which is scored prior to the competition.

For the execution score, the gymnasts can, in fact, receive a perfect 10. It doesn't happen much, and the scoring is obviously different, but the way I understand it it can happen.

The final score adds the execution score to the difficulty. Which means you have a theoretical "best score" for any given performance - but those "best scores" aren't consistent from skill to skill because of the varying degrees of difficulty.

Did that make sense? More importantly from those smarter than me - did I get that right?
