"Better" is an inappropriate word as the lenses have different focal ranges. Granted, there is some overlap but they ultimately serve different purposes.

Definitely. I don't do a huge amount of landscape photography but I use my Tokina 11-16mm for it.

While it's perhaps not a classic portrait lens, the f/2.8 aperture will make it better suited than most wide-angle zoom lenses for portraits.

The 10-22 would be an excellent lens for landscapes, you can't really get any wider than that without getting into circular fisheye territory. Also take a look at the Tokina 11-16, its constant f/2.8 aperture can be a life saver when doing landscapes in dimmer light, it's an overall excellent lens (I'm sure Rorschach can back me up on that one!).

The 17-55 is less of a portrait lens, and more of a general purpose zoom. While it would work, you'd be better off with an 85mm, 105mm, 135mm, or if you can afford it, a 70-200mm. In general 55mm is a bit too short for most portraits, but it certainly will work if you need it to. If you can dish out the extra cash, the 24-70 may be a better bet as you get a longer focal length, plus it will be compatible with a full frame camera if you choose to upgrade in the future. The 24-105 f/4 is also a great, very versatile lens with an excellent price tag, but you do lost a stop of light.
