m=8
s=12
r=5

Total = 30

To maximize the number of person outside of set, we need to minimize the number of people in the set. so consider that all the 5 candidates of set r also member or both m and s.

Total people in teams = m+s+r - (common to all three) = 8+12+5 - 5 = 20

Total people out of team = 30-20 = 10

IMO D.
