The Directive Principles of State Policy (DPSP) in the Constitution of India do not constitute limitations on the legislative function or executive function. They are non-justiciable rights and provide guidelines and principles for the state to follow in policymaking and governance. The DPSPs are categorized into socialistic principles, Gandhian principles, and liberal-intellectual principles, each reflecting specific goals and objectives for the state to strive towards in promoting social justice, economic welfare, and overall development.

On the other hand, fundamental rights, which are justiciable, act as limitations on the legislative and executive functions. Fundamental rights are legally enforceable and provide constitutional safeguards for individual liberties and protection against any infringement by the state.

Therefore, the correct answer is (d) Neither 1 nor 2. The Directive Principles of State Policy do not constitute limitations on the legislative or executive functions, while fundamental rights act as limitations on these functions.
