Spanish translation:Cobertizo/desviar
Explanation:
There seem to be two uses of the word 'shed' here. One as a structure (cobertizo), and another as a verb to diverting water from a structure. (Desviar or repeler el agua).

Reference information:
Again your text is all mixed up. Based on the link from Quizlet, there is nothing about a "shed roof" (which appears three times at top).

Slide 17:
Question: What is the purpose of a step flashing?
Answer: To shed water away from the structure at roof to wall transitions. Step flashings (sic) are interwoven between each course of shingles and protect the transition from wter intrusion by creating a water shed a.k.a. (also known as) single effect.


However,
Basic Roof Styles - Carpentry-Pro-Framer
https://www.carpentry-pro-framer.com/roof-styles.html
Shed Roof: this type of roof only slopes down in one direction. It is sometimes used on a lower porch roof and ties into a wall or upper steeper roof. It is also used on smaller buildings where one wall is built taller than the opposite one to create the pitch, hence the term "shed roof".

The rest of this is nonsense!
"D.

slope to shed rain water is called: C.

another to create a water shed

of the tile and relying on a positive slope to shed rain".
