This is again a use of FOIL
$\left(1-\sqrt{x}{\right)}^{2}$
This term is expanded into
$\left(1-\sqrt{x}\right)\left(1-\sqrt{x}\right)$
Multiply the FIRST terms together
(1)(1) = 1
Multiply the OUTER terms together
$\left(1\right)\left(-\sqrt{x}\right)=-\sqrt{x}$
Now multiply the inner terms together
$\left(-\sqrt{x}\right)\left(1\right)=-\sqrt{x}$
Then multiply the LAST terms together
$\left(-\sqrt{x}\right)\left(-\sqrt{x}\right)=\left(-\sqrt{x}\right)2=x$
$1-\sqrt{x}-\sqrt{x}+x$
$=1-2\sqrt{x}+x$

$\left(1-\sqrt{x}{\right)}^{2}$ is the same as $\left(1-\sqrt{x}\right)\left(1-\sqrt{x}\right)$
$\left(1-\sqrt{x}\right)$
$\left(1-\sqrt{x}\right)$
$1-\left(1\right)\sqrt{x}$

$1-2\sqrt{x}+x$
