1. Incorrect - 'u' is not appropriate.
If the original question had 'you' where you have written 'u', then this is the correct sentence.

2. Incorrect - capital letter usage is wrong before you even look at the tenses.
3. Pretty much correct, but two 'get's so close together are very poor usage.
4. Poor usage.
5. Poor usage.

These are correct:
Do you really think you will have time to get bored?
Do you really think you will have the time to get bored?
Do you really think you will have time to be bored?
Do you really think you will have the time to be bored?
Do you really think you will have time for boredom to set in?
Do you really think you'll have enough time for boredom to be a problem?
