Add multiple custom post types in functions.php, but only one custom post type show in dashboard

I am new to wordpress, and I am trying to add multiple custom post types in the functions.php.

Adding one cpt is fine. but if I use the same function to add the second cpt (with just a change of the function name), the second cpt doesn’t show in the dashboard menu.

Below are the codes. I would greatly appreciate help in this. Thank you!

// register a new post type with Divi builder on

function create_new_cpt()
{
$labels = array(
‘name’ => _x(‘Article’, ‘Article’, ‘divi’), // CPT name is Article. Replace every instance of this CPT name with your own
‘singular_name’ => _x(‘Article’, ‘article’, ‘divi’),
‘menu_name’ => __(‘Article’, ‘divi’),
‘edit_item’ => __(‘Edit Article’, ‘divi’),
‘add_new_item’ => __( ‘Add New Article’, ‘divi’ ),
