I believe the answer is: Be less than
Without price control, the sellers/producers tend to have the tendency to keep increasing the selling price of the product in order to maximize their profit. When this happen, the demand of that product would be decreased which resulted in over supply of the product.
In a market without price controls, supply will eventually be less than the demand. Then consumers will buy all the products that producers supply.
In the market where there is no price control present in the system, the supply of the goods would be less than the demand of the goods. When the supply of the goods would be less, the consumers will demand and buy all the amount that the producers are supplying in the market to satisfy their needs with that particular good. The demand would be more as compared to the supply.
