Induction Motor:No of rotor poles not equal to no of stator poles

Consider 2 cases

case 1: no of rotor poles = 2
no of stator poles =4

case 2: no of rotor poles = 4
no of stator poles =2

What will happen in case 1 & 2 ? Will Induction motor run?

It's OK so long as there are poles to match up.

... in this example there are fewer poles in the rotor than in the stator.
