In brief: Lots of ways

Hepatitis a is usually spread by eating contaminated food; hepatitis b & c are usually spread via blood transfusion, needle sharing, tattooing, or unprotected sex.
But it is important to remember that any of the hepatitis types can probably be spread by any of the above methods.
