First solve the quadratic equation

x^2-2x+1=0 \Rightarrow (x-1)^2=0 \Rightarrow x=1

and then plug in this value to the expression x-1=1-1=0

Therefore the correct answer is (A).

x^2-2x+1=0 \Rightarrow (x-1)^2=0 \Rightarrow x=1

and then plug in this value to the expression x-1=1-1=0

Therefore the correct answer is (A).
