You have anal sphincter muscles which control the release of liquids, solids and gases. Your muscles adjust to the the pressure build up of either of the three states - and you release liquid, gas or solid. Sometimes the preesure build up is intense and you can choose to open the sphincter muscles and expel violently (*FARRRRRRRRRRRRRRTTTTTT*) or sometimes there is less gas, and you may choose to just *slip one out* (*Pfft*)

The solid matter is left over, undigested food (roughage) and the liquid matter (eg when you have diarrhoea) is the same, but with less water having been absorbed higher in your intestines.

The gas, ie farts, is simply a by product from the digested food particles left in your colon. Certain foods produce more gas, and different people also experience this differently.

The reason is because that is a way to release carbon dioxide.

Your question is misguided. The question you should be asking is "why do cattle fart" because their farts are destroying the ozone layer, planet Earth and (incidentally) the human race!

Gases like methane are a biproduct of digestion. Sometimes these gases build up. The sound occures because of your tightened spincter muscle. Blowing a rasberry with your mouth is the same concept.
