Adsorption occurs when you have a heterogenous catalyst being used, that is, a catalyst that is in a different phase than the reactants. Usually, adsorption occurs when your catalyst is a solid, and the reactants, rather than going inside or being absorbed by the catalyst, simply sit on top of it as the reaction proceeds.

its basically when the reactants sit on the surface of the catalyst.

Adsorption is when the catalyst is a solid and the reaction takes place on its surface. This image is an example to help visualize:
