Either. It depends on the situation. The player covering 2nd is usually determined by who is at bat, the runners on base, and, primarily, the team manager. The second baseman and the shortstop usually will signal each other before each pitch, who will be responsible for covering 2nd. This is done by whichever infielder has been designated to give the signal to the other, and is done by covering the mouth with the glove, looking at the other infielder and either opening the mouth, or closing it. An open mouth means the other player is covering, a closed mouth means the signaling player is covering. Open mouth mean you (the other player), closed mouth mean me (the signaling player).

What is the purpose of shortstop?

Shortstops have one main duty, fielding balls hit to their position. When a fly ball is hit to them(either a line drive or pop-up) the player has to catch it, making sure that they don't collide with other fielders trying to make the same play. When a ground ball is hit to them, a shortstop has to throw to a base to get a runner out. Shortstops also cover second base for double plays when the ball is hit to the second baseman. Finally, they(or the second baseman) cover second base on a steal or pick off attempt.
