How to retrieve the data from web page
I am having question on how to retrieve data from web page.
There are 'Yes' , 'No' checkbox for different questions on the web page. There are around 50 such questions.
Any help is very much appreciated. Please let me know at the earliest.

I am afraid that I don't really understand. If there are checkboxes for both Yes and No, what is to stop the user checking both boxes? Surely what you want is radio buttons?
What if the user checks neither box, or selects neither radio button?

Actually, Philip, I think your "unless used with an Ajax call..." is a tad misleading.
Unless the JS author has access to some server-side process that is designed to handle the form contents, AJAX won't help a bit. And, of course, it's actually much more complex to make an AJAX call and pass all the <FORM> contents than it is to simply submit to a PHP/JSP/ASP/ASP.NET page.
I guess I'm saying don't encourage non-server-side coders into thinking AJAX is some magic bullet. It's usually just a way to make life even more complex for the coder.
