The number line is drawn so that the positive numbers are to your right and negative numbers to your left. As the numbers move from right to left they become smaller. As the question states, 2 is less than 3 (or 3 is greater than 2). 2 is greater than 1 1 is greater than 0.....at this stage the numbers change from positive to negative 0 is greater than -1 -1 is greater than -2 -2 is greater than -3.......and so on. If this 'direction' rule was not applied then a situation could occur where 2 was greater than -2 (which is the normal rule) and also -2 is greater than 2 which would create absolute confusion.

There is no specific name. -3 is greater than -4 and (-3)/(-4) = 3/4 is a positive proper fraction. 3 is greater than -4 and (-3)/4 = -3/4 is a negative proper fraction. 3 is greater than -2 and 3/(-2) = -3/2 is a negative improper fraction. 4 is greater than 3 and 4/3 is a positive improper fraction. Thus, the fraction can be negative or positive, proper or improper.
