The missing card

Created by Julien Palard

Write a function named missing_card that given a card game returns the (single) missing card name.

The card game will be given as a single string of space-separated cards names.

A card is represented by its color and value, the color being in {"S", "H", "D", "C"} and the value being in {"2", "3", "4", "5", "6", "7", "8", "9", "10", "J", "Q", "K", "A"}, for a total of 52 possibilities.

You'll always be given 51 cards, and you have to return the missing one.


        "S2 S3 S4 S5 S6 S7 S8 S9 S10 SJ SQ SK SA "
        "H2 H3 H4 H5 H6 H7 H8 H9 H10 HJ HQ HK HA "
        "D2 D3 D4 D5 D6 D7 D8 D9 D10 DJ DQ DK DA "
        "C2 C3 C4 C5 C6 C7 C8 C9 C10 CJ CQ CK"

should print CA (beware, your function should return, in my example I used print to print it).
