Although adolescent maturational and developmental states occur in an orderly sequence, their timing (i) _______ with regard to onset and duration.

We begin with the word "Although", which indicates two ideas will be contrasted. We are told that the maturational and developmental states occur in an orderly sequence. We can then expect their timing with regard to their onset and duration to be not in an orderly sequence.

Thus varies is the correct answer.

Although indicates that there second part of the sentence should be opposite to the first part. First part says that maturation occurs in orderly sequence. We need to find word that is opposite in meaning of orderly sequence which is varies.
