$2$

Explanation:

As per the question, we have

$1 - 7 - \left(2 \times 2\right) + 6 \times 2$

$\therefore$ According to BODMAS ( B rackets of D ivision M ultiplication A ddition S ubtraction) also known as PEMDAS,

$1 - 7 - 4 + 6 \times 2$

$= 1 - 7 - 4 + 12$

$= 1 - 7 + 8$

$= 1 + 1$

$= 2$

Therefore, simplification of this problem according to BODMAS (PEMDAS)gives us the answer $2$.
