Given expression is $\large\frac{1-4\sin 10^{\large\circ}\sin 70^{\large\circ}}{2\sin 10^{\large\circ}}$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{1-2[\cos 60^{\large\circ}-\cos 80^{\large\circ}]}{2\sin 10^{\large\circ}}$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{1-2[\large\frac{1}{2}-\cos 80^{\large\circ}]}{2\sin 10^{\large\circ}}$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{2\cos 80^{\large\circ}}{2\sin 10^{\large\circ}}$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{\cos (90^{\large\circ}-10^{\large\circ})}{\sin 10^{\large\circ}}$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{\sin 10^{\large\circ}}{\sin 10^{\large\circ}}$
$\Rightarrow 1$
Hence (b) is the correct answer.
