The type of control that describes the response of the operon when no regulatory protein existing. In the case of negative regulator genes in the operon are different, unless you are turned off by a repressor protein. Therefore, the operon is turned into essential genes (to be prcise) when the repressor in inactivated. In the case of the positive control, the genes are different only when an active regulator protein, an activator, is present, So the operon is shut off when the positive regulatory protein which is missing or inactivated.
