```Hello,

One way to it is this:

Map[{#[[1]],1/#[[2]]}&, data],

Or, in even more cryptic form:

{#[[1]], 1/#[[2]]}& /@ data

The expression {#[[1]], 1/#[[2]]}& is a pure function, which receives
{x,y} (or longer lists)
as input and returns {x, 1/y}, and you simply map that function to your
list.
