Questions 1 through 5 are about your obsessive thoughts.
Obsessions are unwanted ideas, images, or impulses that intrude on thinking against your wishes and efforts to resist them. They usually involve themes of harm, risk, and danger. Common obsessions are excessive feats of contamination; recurring doubts about danger; extreme concern with order, symmetry, or exactness; fear of losing important things
1. Time Occupied by Obsessive Thoughts
[select name="Q1" value="0|1|2|3|4"] <-- How much of your time was occupied by obsessive thoughts?
0 = None - If you checked this answer, also check 0 for questions 2, 3, 4 and 5 and
proceed to question 6.
1 = Less than 1 hour per day, or occasional occurrence.
2 = 1 to 3 hours per day, or frequent occurrence.
3 = More than 3 hours and up to 8 hours per day, or very frequent occurrence.
4 = More than 8 hours per day, or nearly constant occurrence.

2. Interference Due to Obsessive Thoughts
[select name="Q2" value="0|1|2|3|4"] <-- How much do your obsessive thoughts interfere with your work, school, social, or other important role functioning? Is there anything that you don’t do because of them?
0 = None
1 = Slight interference with social or other activities, but overall performance not impaired.
2 = Definitive interference with social or occupational performance, but still manageable.
3 = Causes substantial impairment in social or occupational performance.
4 = Incapacitating.

3. Distress Associated with Obsessive Thoughts
[select name="Q3" value="0|1|2|3|4"] <-- How much distress do your obsessive thoughts cause you?
0 = None
1 = Not too disturbing.
2 = Disturbing, but still manageable.
3 = Very disturbing.
4 = Near constant and disabling distress.

4. Resistance Against Obsessions
[select name="Q4" value="0|1|2|3|4"] <-- How much of an effort do you make to resist the obsessive thoughts? How often do you try to disregard or turn your attention away from those thoughts as they enter your mind?
0 = Try to resist all the time.
1 = Try to resist most of the time.
2 = Make some effort to resist.
3 = Yield to all obsessions without attempting to control them, but with some reluctance.
4 = Completely and willingly yield to all obsessions.

5. Degree of Control Over Obsessive Thoughts
[select name="Q5" value="0|1|2|3|4"] <-- How much control do you have over your obsessive thoughts? How successful are you in stopping or diverting your obsessive thinking?
0 = Complete control
1 = Usually able to stop or divert obsessions with some effort and concentration.
2 = Sometimes· able to stop or divert obsessions.
3 = Rarely successful in stopping obsessions or dismissing obsessions, can only divert attention with great difficulty.
4 = Obsessions are completely involuntary, rarely able to even momentarily alter obsessive thinking.

Questions 6 through 10 are about your compulsive behaviors.
Compulsions are urges that people have to do something to lessen feelings of anxiety or other discomfort. Often they do repetitive, purposeful, intentional behaviors called rituals. The behavior itself may seem appropriate but it becomes a ritual when done to excess. Washing, checking, repeating, straightening, hoarding, and many other behaviors can be rituals. Some rituals are mental. For example, thinking or saying things over and over under your breath

6. Time Spent Performing Compulsive Behaviors
[select name="Q6" value="0|1|2|3|4"] <-- How much time do you spend performing compulsive behaviors? How much longer than most people does it take to complete routine activities because of your rituals? How frequently do you do rituals?
0 = None.
1 = Less than 1 hour per day, or occasional performance of compulsive behavior.
2 = 1 to 3 hours per day, or frequent performance of compulsive behavior.
3 = More than 3 hours and up to 8 hours per day, or very frequent performance of compulsive behaviors.
4 = More than 8 hours per day, or near-constant performance of compulsive behavior (too numerous to count).

7. Interference Due to Compulsive Behaviors
[select name="Q7" value="0|1|2|3|4"] <-- How much do your compulsive behaviors interfere with your work, school, social, or functioning? Is there anything you don’t do because of your compulsions?
0 = None.
1 = Slight interference with social or other activities, but overall performance not impaired.
2 = Definite interference with social or occupational performance, but still manageable.
3 = Causes substantial impairment in social or occupational performance.
4 = Incapacitating.

8. Distress Associated with Compulsive Behavior
[select name="Q8" value="0|1|2|3|4"] <-- How would you feel if prevented from performing your compulsion(s)? How anxious would you become?
0 = Not at all anxious.
1 = Only slightly anxious if compulsions prevented.
2 = Anxiety would mount but remain manageable if compulsions prevented.
3 = Prominent and very disturbing increase in anxiety if compulsions interrupted.
4 = Incapacitating anxiety from any intervention aimed at modifying activity

9. Resistance Against Compulsions
[select name="Q9" value="0|1|2|3|4"] <-- How much of an effort do you make to resist the compulsions?
0 = Always try to resist.
1 = Try to resist most of the time.
2 = Make some effort to resist.
3 = Yield to almost all compulsions without attempting to control them, but with some reluctance.
4 = Completely and willingly yield to all compulsions.

10. Degree of Control Over Compulsive Behavior
[select name="Q10" value="0|1|2|3|4"] <-- How strong is the drive to perform the compulsive behavior? How much control do you have over the compulsions?
0 = Complete control.
1 = Pressure to perform the behavior but usually able to exercise voluntary control over it.
2 = Strong pressure to perform behavior, can control it only with difficulty.
3 = Very strong drive to perform behavior, must be carried to completion, can only delay with difficulty.
4 = Drive to perform behavior experienced as completely involuntary and overpowering, rarely able to even momentarily delay activity.
