What type of transformer has more turns in the primary than the secondary?

A step down transformer has less turns on the secondary coil that the primary coil. The induced voltage across the secondary coil is less the applied voltage across the primary coil or in other words the voltage is “stepped-down”. Transformers are very efficient.

Also asked, which is the primary side of the transformer?

If the secondary winding has fewer turns than the primary winding, the output voltage is lower. This is a "step-down transformer".
