You can usually tell if something is solid or gas by looking through the problem you are doing (it is normally given) and it is usually marked on the periodic table. You can determine if a solution is aqueous if you see that it is being dissolved in water or if ions/precipitates are involved in a problem.
From my understanding, aqueous refers to an element/molecule dissolved in a solvent, typically water. The molecule is a solid, but it is dissolved in the solvent so it's referred to as aqueous. Liquid, on the other hand, is a "pure" form of the substance, meaning that it isn't dissolved in any solvent, rather it's in the liquid state. An example of this would be mercury or H20.
