There are 3 ways for heat to be transferred; Conduction, Convection and Radiation
Conduction results in atoms transferring energy via vibrations.
Convection occurs in liquids and gases, hot or energized molecules rise up and begin a current.
Radiation is nothing like the above two, as it does require matter to travel through and transfer heat.
As space is a vacuum, only radiation can occur. Therefore the answer is c ; Earth can only receive heat in the form of radiation
