It looks childish.
But I would like to get answers from all of you.

Such a general question can only be answered in general terms... A resistor resists the flow of current.what is the function of a resistor in a circuit?
It's function is to serve whatever function the circuit designer intended.what is the function of a resistor in a circuit?
There is no answer to "what is the function of a resistor in a circuit?" that has any substance. A particular resistor in a particular circuit, yes, but there is no general case.I find it a little sad that many answers make fun of the question.
Admittedly, it is a very general question - but it is a question to which a factual answer is possible.
Let's assume that a beginner (student) asks this question - it would be embarrassing if I couldn't give him a substantial answer to it and had to fob him off with silly sayings.
I don't see the significance of that chicken and egg distinction as pertains to my post.I say it's the other way around.
Which one came first, Ohm's Law or the resistor?
The resistor came first. Ohm's Law describes the behaviour of the resistor.
