Welcome. The Search API (i.e. the functions that use the “search” namespace prefix by default) is a higher-level abstraction above some of the other built-in APIs, including Core Text Services (“cts”). It provides conveniences like Google-style query parsing, pagination, faceting, and context-sensitive result snippets out-of-the-box. Like the underlying APIs, the Search API is designed for performance at scale. If you’re just getting started, I’d encourage you to begin with the Search API. As your application requirements (and MarkLogic knowledge) grow, you can take advantage of the rich customization and extensibility hooks built into the Search API.
If you haven’t already, I’d encourage you to read the “Search Developer’s Guide” <http://developer.marklogic.com/pubs/4.1/books/search-dev-guide.pdf>. Section 2.2.2, for example, includes a chart comparing the Search API constraints and facets with their equivalent cts:query and lexicon calls.
Again, welcome and please feel free to contact me with questions and/or post them to this discussion list.

I am new to Mark logic. And I am analyzing the difference between search:search() and cts:search() functions.

Can we get facet in cts:search() result?

If yes,please let me know how to get facet in results of cts:search as we get in search:search.
