explain the reaction of consumer when 1. price ratio is higher than MRS 2. price ration is lower than MRS

When the price ratio is higher than MRS then,  the consumer would tend to move towards equilibrium (where MRS is equal to price ratio) by giving up some amount of good 1 to increase the consumption of good 2. 

On the other hand, when price ratio is less than MRS the consumer would tend to move towards the equilibrium by giving up some amount of good 2 to increase the consumption of good 1.
