First, let's determine a definition of a wave. The wave is a disturbance that propagates through a medium and particles of the medium move as the energy propagates through it.
Particles in the medium are connected by attractive forces. In solids, these forces are stronger than in liquids, while gases have the smallest attractive forces.
Energy flows faster when particles are closer to each other which means the wave speed is much greater in solids and liquids than in gases.
