See the entire solution process below:

#### Explanation:

Use this rule of exponents to remove the negative exponent:

${x}^{\textcolor{red}{a}} = \frac{1}{x} ^ \textcolor{red}{- a}$

${\left(\sqrt{3}\right)}^{\textcolor{red}{- 1}} = \frac{1}{\sqrt{3}} ^ \textcolor{red}{- - 1} = \frac{1}{\sqrt{3}} ^ 1$

Now, use this rule of exponents to complete the simplification:

${a}^{\textcolor{red}{1}} = a$

$\frac{1}{\sqrt{3}} ^ 1 = \frac{1}{\sqrt{3}}$
