Is this a trick question?

4 posts, the front posts are taller than the back posts. If you bury the posts you get structural stability from the ground, if you build off of pier blocks, then you'll have to install knee bracing between the posts and roof to provide the structural stability.

Header across front posts, header across back posts, rafters and facia on top of the headers. Metal or fiberglass roof panels will require battons across the rafters, otherwise sheet with plywood and install composition roofing.

This would make a great weekend project.
