Hardwood is an entirely different product than MDF or particle board, and are not really comparable.
The different materials you mention are not really interchangeable, but are used in different applications.

While some projects can be made similarly using different materials, the methods of construction will often differ to accommodate the materials.

While solid lumber may be considered the best material for fine furniture, it's not always the right material for some types of furniture, for a variety of reasons.

Having said that, there are different grades of MDF, different grades of particle board, and different grades of plywood.
