#### Answer

As $x\to {{1}^{-}}$ , $f\left( x \right)\to -\infty \ .$

#### Work Step by Step

In the graph $x=1$ is a vertical asymptote and the function $f\left( x \right)$ decreases without bound as $x$ approaches to $1$ from the left side. Thus, the function $f\left( x \right)$ tends to $-\infty$ as $x\to {{1}^{-}}$.
