No answer. Because it is depended upon the gravitational force. That's why there is no answer. And is we know that the gravitational force of the moon is lower than the Earth so the weight of the man would be lower than the 60kg. And on the earth the air also applies force on our body. That's all is the theory...

60 kg is the mass of a objaec in this case the person. It does not change from place to place unlike weight which is the force of attraction to the centre of an object lets say earth. It is measured in Newton (N)
