The given expression
$\sqrt 3\sin 75^{\circ}-\cos 75^{\large\circ}$
$\Rightarrow 2(\large\frac{\sqrt 3}{2}$$\sin 75^{\circ}-\large\frac{1}{2}$$\cos 75^{\large\circ})$
$\Rightarrow 2(\cos 30^{\large\circ}-\sin 75^{\large\circ}-\sin 30^{\large\circ}\cos 75^{\large\circ})$
$\Rightarrow 2\sin(75^{\large\circ}-30^{\large\circ})$
$\Rightarrow 2\sin 45^{\large\circ}$
$\Rightarrow 2\times \large\frac{1}{\sqrt 2}$
$\Rightarrow \sqrt 2$
Hence (d) is the correct option.
