D

because M has no member in either of the club S and R. so it's separated from them.

And as the question ask u to find the greatest possible value for those who join neither club.

As R<S (5<12), so u can assume all the members in R are also in S.

So 30-8-12=30-20=10

i also get D.10

using a Venn diagram would be helpful
only M = 8 (since no overlap with the other two)
for R = 5 (but all 5 members are also in S)
for S = 7
R&S = 5
30-8-5-7 = 10 in none

Should have paid more attention to question, yes it's 10.
How I got it wrong:
Assumption that members of both R and S are not in any other committee.
Maximum which are not in any of the committee = 30 -(8+12+5-5) = 10
