While all the options listed may be important functions of a constitution, the primary purpose of a constitution is to establish the fundamental framework for governance and to define and limit the powers of the government. The constitution sets out the structure of the government, outlines the rights and freedoms of individuals, and establishes the relationship between the government and its citizens. It serves as a supreme law that guides the functioning of the state and ensures that the powers of the government are exercised within defined boundaries to prevent abuse of authority and protect the rights of the people.
