With just one rectifier diode, you will have the usual half-wave output waveform (positive half-cycle followed by a period of no conduction,then pos. half cycle again followed by no conduction etc.)

IF REPLACED WITH ZENER DIODE: You will have positive half-cycle displayed as well as a part of the negative half cycle, clipped at exactly the zener voltage. Etc., etc.
