An 'induced magnet' is a piece of magnetic material, eg iron, which behaves as a magnet only when placed in a magnetic field.
Imagine you have a bar magnet and use it to pick up a paperclip - the paperclip is the induced magnet. It's made of magnetic material and is attracted to the bar magnet.
The force is always attractive - ie a north pole on a permanent magnet will always induce a south pole on the paperclip and thus attract.
