Man vs. Man can be seen in the conflict between

Tom and Gatsby over Daisy's love;

George and Gatsby over the death of Myrtle;

Nick and others over their response to Gatsby's death

Man vs. Self can be seen in the conflict between Gatsby and himself in his desire to improve in order to attract and keep Daisy

Man Vs. Society can be seen in that Gatsby is going against societal values by being a bootlegger in order to make enough money for Daisy to want him. It can also be seen in Tom's behavior with Myrtle and their affair.
