Dear Student
Kindly find the answer of your asked query.

1) When a metal sphere is touched by the neutral glass  rod then no charge  will be induced on the glass rod.
But when a metal rod is brought near to the metal sphere then equal and opposite charge would induced on the metal rod.

Hope this information will clear your doubt about electrostatics.
