If you pick a face, you will pull a solid, if you pick curves or edges, you will pull a surface.
Please figure out how to set your screen capture utility so you don't end up with a huge whitespace at the bottom of your image.

I can't replicate what i did earlier. if i draw a rectangle it will always turn into a surface so when i pull on it it turns into solid. i am not sure how i was able to generate that box ( only sides pulled out) that you saw earlier in my screen capture.

Yes i did check"create layout curves" but i didnt know what it does. You answered my question.
Thank you all!

Regular curves in sketches will Auto-close if possible, even if nested or multiple-region-ed, in order to make the simplest set of surfaces. Selecting curves manually for Pull can make that open box that you showed, or else selecting just edges of flat surfaces and pulling them, only. This is usually useful for modeling, and can even (to a limited extent and until these auto-created faces are further complicated) revert to the original curves when returning to the sketch for further edits.
The Create Layout Curves option tells these curves not to be considered 'transient' and keeps them out of the automatic closing behavior when exiting the sketch, while also associating them to the plane in which they are defined.
