First of all, Silkscreen and Offset printing do not refer to the same colour guides. Silkscreen printing is done refering to the Pantone (or HKS) color reference. On the other hand, Offset printing refers to the CMYK color reference.
Secondly, the two processes are used for different purposes; Silkscreen will be used for artworks with non-gradient printing, while Offset printing will be used for artwork with gradient colors printing (example: a photo picture)
Thirdly, the painting colors used for Silkscreen printing is thicker than the one used for Offset printing. Offset printing uses painting colors that are more liquid to get thinner grain and detailed definition.
It depends. It is important to realize that the Offset printing and Silkscreen printing are two processes fundamentally different. They are used for different purposes. Offset printing will be used for complex artwork with gradual colors and many details. And Silkscreen printing will be used for simpler artwork with a precise number of colors.
