    Both will decrease.....what else ??

    Look at it this way- A solar cell is equivalent to a DC source with a series Variable resistance. If you vary the Resistance, the voltage V across the Load and the current I in the circuit both vary in step. In a solar cell, light intensity acts as the variable resistance in the circuit.
