```In any looping function, the iterator may take the form {i, lis}, where
lis is an explicit list of values. So in your situation you need only
construct that list, for example:

avals = Complement[Range, Range[7, 11]];

Then:

Sum[a^2 - 3 a/(4 a^2), {a, avals}]

Of course you can do the entire thing at once by putting the Complement
expression that constructs the list directly into the Sum expression:

Sum[a^2 - 3 a/(4 a^2), {a, Complement[Range, Range[7, 11]]}]
