I have to make this exercise :

Design the function different. It consumes two (representations of 
three-letter words and creates a word from the differences. For each 
position in the words, it uses the letter from the second word, if the 
two are the same; otherwise it uses the marker "*". Note: The problem 
statement mentions two different tasks: one concerning words and one 
concerning letters. This suggests that you design two functions.

Im my opion I only need 1 function.

I use a cond to check if the letters are the same and if print the 
letter otherwise print x .

Can anyone give me a tip what the second function can be.
