What is meant by phrase: "nature of reactants"?

Like: solid, liquid, gas, aqueous? It's different from concentration, right?


It is listed as something that may or may not have an impact on the speed of a chemical reaction.

Update 2:

other options are: catalyst, temperature, reactant concentration
