This question already has an answer here:

I have asked almost > 10 questions on Stack Overflow and all are having positive votes, but I have still not received the Curious badge.

As per the Curious badge description:

Ask a well-received question on 5 separate days, and maintain a positive question record

It is also showing in my profile that I have asked 10/5 well-received questions.

Enter image description here

But still I have not been awarded that badge and showing me that this badge is recommended.

What might be the possible reason for this?

The problem is that you must "ask a well-received question on 5 separate days, and maintain a positive question record." You have done the former but not the latter.

As explained here:

A positive question record means you don't have too many closed, downvoted or deleted questions, overall. The formula is (total questions - negative questions - closed - deleted)/total questions >= 0.5. Questions that have been downvoted and closed and deleted count three times in this calculation!

In your case, the calculation is (24 - 5 - 2 - 11)/24 = 0.25 < 0.5. Because you're short of the 0.5 threshold, you haven't gotten the badge yet.
