So, these four colours are called CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow and black). These four colours form the base colours for all colours used in printing. So, that means any colour can be obtained by using these in correct proportions.

Plates of all these colours are laid out on a page separately and lined up in the same spot while printing. This is necessary to print a full colour image accurately. If the images are somehow blurry and not crisp enough, you will find the colours overlapping or not in the same line.
