Thanks for the questionnaire. I am no HR expert and am not commenting on the content based on a brief scan. However, I would like to know why you chose 10-point scale for 2 questions and then a skewed 5-point scale for some of the other questions.
Also the terminology is also different. (Very clear and poor are not ends of a continuum.

i too am not an expert as i am a student of HR. as per my understanding i've chosen 10 point scale in 2 questions as i've asked employees understanding rate in it to know the impact of the induction methodology we are using to explain them about the company. and in other question i have asked to rate them the importance of whatever policies etc they have been told so that we can know how much important, they think, listening to the policies is or rather how much clear they are about the policies.
on the other way round, those 10-point scale questions could have been made as 5-point scale but dont you think you will get pissed off by filling or answering the same type of scales for all the questions?!!

No, I would not be bored, let alone "pissed off" (as you put it) by answering questions with the same scales. However, I would be put off from answering a questionnaire which is not clear or which is ambiguous and skewed towards what management like to hear.

You can make use of a software SPSS to interpret if your results are based on multi-factors.
Pls refer book called Marketing Research by Naresh Malhotra to clear off your doubts.
Hope it helps!
