Journal articles

Those examples are references to articles in scholarly journals and how they are supposed to appear in your bibliography.

Not all journals organize their published articles in volumes and issues, so these fields are optional. Some electronic journals do not provide a page range, but instead list an article identifier. In a case like this it's safe to use the article identifier instead of the page range.

A journal article with 1 author
Gaherty, J. B. “Seismic evidence for hotspot-induced buoyant flow beneath the Reykjanes Ridge.” Science (New York, N.Y.) 293.5535 (2001): 1645–1647.
A journal article with 2 authors
Goswami, Prashant, and Jurismita Baruah. “Quantitative assessment of relative roles of drivers of acute respiratory diseases.” Scientific reports 4 (2014): 6532.
A journal article with 3 authors
Takano, Akira, Toshiya Endo, and Tohru Yoshihisa. “tRNA actively shuttles between the nucleus and cytosol in yeast.” Science (New York, N.Y.) 309.5731 (2005): 140–142.
A journal article with 4 or more authors
Wei, Zhengchao et al. “Decoy-state quantum key distribution with biased basis choice.” Scientific reports 3 (2013): 2453.

Reports

This example shows the general structure used for government reports, technical reports, and scientific reports. If you can't locate the report number then it might be better to cite the report as a book. For reports it is usually not individual people that are credited as authors, but a governmental department or agency like "U. S. Food and Drug Administration" or "National Cancer Institute".

Government report
