If I press Shift + D many times and then click the Right Mouse Button, will I have many duplicated objects in the same place, or will it be only one duplicated object?

I ask because if there are many duplicated objects in the same place, how can I then select each one of them? In object mode I can select each object by right clicking on it.

    $\begingroup$ Yes they will all be copied in the same exact place. The best way to select them all would be through the outliner. $\endgroup$ – icYou520 Jul 18 '17 at 19:20

    $\begingroup$ You can right click on the place with multiple objects while holding Alt which will bring a pop up menu with objects available under cursor position, e.g. blender.stackexchange.com/questions/36676/… $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Jul 18 '17 at 19:42

A duplicate will be created every time you press Shift + D and right or left click the mouse button.

If you only press Shift+D multiple times, but only click the mouse once, only one duplicate will be made.

If you're in Object Mode, then you can just right click each one as you said.

If you're in Edit Mode then right click to select one of the vertices and press Ctrl + L. This will select all the geometry connected to that vertex. Since none of the duplicates are connected, it will select each duplicated instance:
