'though' indicates a contrast. Since people ask questions that have certain characteristics in common, we need a word that contrasts the word 'common'. Only option D can fit in the blank.

The keyword here is 'though'. The answer shifts because of the keyword though. The answer is therefore D

We are told that the questions, "though very __________, have certain characteristics in common".

the word "though" introduces a contrast, so if the questions have certain characteristics in common, they must also be different from each other. Only diverse fits the blank well and produces the meaning we desire.
