**Hint:**Here, in the question, we have been given a Venn diagram which represents the data of the newspaper readers of three different brands. We are asked to find the percentage of people who read \[TOI\] or \[HT\] but not \[NBT\]. To find that, we will first find the number of persons who read only \[TOI\], only \[HT\] and only \[NBT\] and then reach the desired result.

Formula used:

\[n\left( {A \cup B \cup C} \right) = n\left( A \right) + n\left( B \right) + n\left( C \right) - n\left( {A \cap B} \right) - n\left( {B \cap C} \right) - n\left( {A \cap C} \right) + n\left( {A \cap B \cap C} \right)\]

**Complete step-by-step solution:**

Given, Total number of persons who read newspaper, \[n\left( {TOI \cup HT \cup NBT} \right)\]=\[302\]

\[

n\left( {HT \cap NBT} \right) = 7 \\

n\left( {TOI \cap NBT} \right) = 12 \\

n\left( {TOI \cap HT} \right) = 9 \\

n\left( {TOI \cap HT \cap NBT} \right) = 3 \]

Now, using identity, \[n\left( {A \cup B \cup C} \right) = n\left( A \right) + n\left( B \right) + n\left( C \right) - n\left( {A \cap B} \right) - n\left( {B \cap C} \right) - n\left( {A \cap C} \right) + n\left( {A \cap B \cap C} \right)\]

\[n\left( {TOI \cup HT \cup NBT} \right) = n\left( {TOI} \right) + n\left( {HT} \right) + n\left( {NBT} \right) - n\left( {TOI \cap HT} \right) - n\left( {HT \cap NBT} \right) - n\left( {TOI \cap NBT} \right) + n\left( {TOI \cap HT \cap NBT} \right)\]

\[ \Rightarrow 302 = n\left( {TOI} \right) + n\left( {HT} \right) + n\left( {NBT} \right) - 9 - 7 - 12 + 3\]

Now, we are given that \[n\left( {TOI} \right) = n\left( {HT} \right) = n\left( {NBT} \right)\]

Therefore, \[ \Rightarrow 302 = 3 \times n\left( {TOI} \right) - 25\]

Simplifying it, we get,

\[

\Rightarrow n\left( {TOI} \right) = \dfrac{{327}}{3} \\

\Rightarrow n\left( {TOI} \right) = 109 \]

Hence, \[n\left( {TOI} \right) = n\left( {HT} \right) = n\left( {NBT} \right) = 109\]

Now, we will calculate the number of persons who read only \[TOI\], only \[HT\] and only \[NBT\] using Venn diagram

\[

n\left( {TOI\;only} \right) = 109 - \left( {6 + 9 + 3} \right) \\

\Rightarrow n\left( {TOI\;only} \right) = 91 \]

Similarly, we get,

\[

n\left( {HT\;only} \right) = 109 - \left( {6 + 4 + 3} \right) \\

\Rightarrow n\left( {HT\;only} \right) = 96 \],

and

\[

n\left( {NBT\;only} \right) = 109 - \left( {9 + 4 + 3} \right) \\

\Rightarrow n\left( {NBT\;only} \right) = 93 \]

Let us draw a fresh Venn diagram again and shade the required region,

Now, using Venn diagram, No. of persons reading \[TOI \text{ or }HT\text{ but not }NBT\] is calculated as:

\[

n\left( {TOI \text{ or }HT\text{ but not }NBT} \right) = 91 + 96 + 6 \\

\Rightarrow n\left( {TOI \text{ or }HT\text{ but not }NBT} \right) = 193 \\

\]

Percentage of persons reading \[TOI \text{ or }HT\text{ but not }NBT\]=\[\dfrac{{193}}{{302}} \times 100\% \]

\[ = 63.907\]

Hence the correct option is C, \[ \cong 64\% \] is the correct option.

**Note:**Whenever we face such types of questions, we should try to solve the question using Venn diagram to a possible extent. Venn diagrams are easy to read and understand. We can understand the data just by looking at the Venn diagram. And it is equally important to remember and understand the basic formula related to Venn diagram problems.
