    Talking what's the difference between "constituent" and "constituency"?

    Hello, everyone here.
    I am new here, nice to meet you all~~
    I am studying Grammar now in HK,
    I meet with a question, I wonder what is the difference between the word "constituent" and "constituency". They are all nouns, by the way.
    Please help me, thank you very much.

    A 'constituent' is a citizen/member of the public who is represented by an elected representative/ government official.

    A 'constituency' is the district where constituents live.
