The answer manifest functions are intended and obvious. Robert Merton pointed out that all sectors of society have numerous functions in which they carry out. Some of these functions are obvious, others are not so obvious. He distinguishes between the two by stating that the recognized and intended functions were the manifest functions and the unrecognized and unintended functions of the latent functions.
