Hi there and thanks for the question


1) Convection-is when a person's body heat is transfered to the surrounding air and vapors surrounding the body.


2) Evaporation-a person loses heat as they sweat.


3) Radiation-the body radiates heat outward around itself


4) Conduction-the transfer of heat through physical contact.



Hope this helps!
