Acids turn blue litmus red. Bases or alkalis turn red litmus blue. Neutral solutions don’t change the colour of either red litmus paper or blue litmus paper.

Litmus is red in acidic medium blue in basic medium and green in neutral medium. So it is used as an indicator

IF you put the red lithmus paper into the acid it will change into blue color.
If you put the blue lithmus paper into the base it will change into red color.
Alkal is a base so if you put the blue lithus paper into the base it  will change into red color.
