What's proper wire to run in exterior conduit?

If you run grey conduit outside what type wire needs to be used to meet code for lights and a fan?

Single THWN wires commonly known as THHN/THWN. Have to buy separate colors, green, white, and black or other colors for additional hot conductors. You could use UF cable (the gray romex like cable that is rated for underground) but it is only allowed in short lengths of conduit for physical protection.
