This means what in regards to the voltage across primary and secondary?
same, except for some losses in the transformer
That when the voltage is higher in the secondary, the current is proportionally lower in the secondary.

Lenz's law states what? Transformer Principles and Applications PP15
That induced voltage opposes current changes
