I think Purlin is the right answer.

Purlin is the first support of EGA.

Battens don't support the covering material rather it helps in fixing the covering material.

Purlins are additional supports.

Rafter provides a base for supporting the roof covering. So the answer is correct 100%.

Sloping roof have no purloin it only comes in truss it has batten for support of rafter and the covering material support by rafter.

Even though purlin comes over a common rafter, the purpose of purlin is to help prevent common rafter from swaying. The support for roofing tiles is actually given by rafters.
