1.
%d
It is a placeholder for a decimal integer in various programming languages
In the C programming language, the following code:

void main()
{
printf("%d", 6);
}

would give the output of

6

In that example, the %d acts as a placeholder for the number 6. So when it gets compiled, the %d gets replaced with a 6
