Hmm Seems to me that the common engines that we use have either a four stroke operating cycle or a two stroke operating cycle. I don,t believe there is such a thing as an engine that has four operating cycles or for that matter two, in other words four cycle or two cycle engines.

"Cycle" and "stroke" in common usage, are the same thing. A 4 stroke engine is a 4 cycle engine, and a 2 stroke engine is a 2 cycle engine. A "4 stroke 2 cycle" engine would be about as rare as a 4 cornered circle or a married bachelor.

Incidentally, the saito fg 21 is a four stroke cycle gasoline engine.

completely agree with all the above, I'm being picky... a 'cycle' is considered the number of piston strokes to complete the combustion process.
in this case the piston moves (or strokes) four times to complete one cycle:
DOWN (intake stroke)
UP (compression stroke)
DOWN (power stroke)
UP (exhaust stroke)

with a two stoke cycle (two stroke or two cycle)
DOWN is always both intake and power combined
UP is always compression and exhaust combined.

(there's NEVER a dumb question when a case of beer hangs in the balance!)

hope that helps
