What is the output of printf("%d")?

1. When we write printf("%d",x); this means compiler will print the
 value of x. But as here, there is nothing after %d so compiler will show
 in output window garbage value.
 2. When we use %d the compiler internally uses it to access the
 argument in the stack (argument stack). Ideally compiler determines
 the offset of the data variable depending on the format specification
 string. Now when we write printf("%d",a) then compiler first accesses
 the top most element in the argument stack of the printf which is %d
 and depending on the format string it calculated to offset to the actual
 data variable in the memory which is to be printed. Now when only %d
 will be present in the printf then compiler will calculate the correct
 offset (which will be the offset to access the integer variable) but as
 the actual data object is to be printed is not present at that memory
 location so it will print what ever will be the contents of that memory
 3. Some compilers check the format string and will generate an error
 without the proper number and type of arguments for things like
 printf(...) and scanf(...).
