All earths connect together so I will not say any more about them.
one is supply ; red black earth
Black will likely need a terminal block we will call it neutral. Red to Common if there is no common then it may be called L for line.
one goes to light; red black earth
Black with other black neutral and red to L1 on switch i.e. remaining terminal.
one goes to fan; red black earth and yellow?
This is a problem as no standard wiring likely red to Common, Yellow to L1 and Black to neutral.
fourth cable goes to power other lights
Red to Common, Black to neutral block and earth with all other earths.
