I'm struggling to find the answer to (When the impedance connected across the secondary winding of a transformer decreases what happens to the current)

My thought is that both the primary and secondary current will decrease given that what happens on one side of the transformer will happen on the other.

A post giving the answer was deleted. Remember this is where students can come to help understand their homework, not have it done for them.

Why do you think the current will decrease?

If you have a relatively constant voltage source connected to a resistor and you lower the value of the resistor, does the current through the resistor (and also the source) increase or decrease?
