As per the rule, the option to select a quantity less than 2 is not possible for the customer. If a customer selects a quantity less than 2, then a warning popup will display on the product page as shown in the below screenshot.

A similar kind of popup will also display on the page when a customer selects a quantity greater than the set quantity i.e. 8.

Additionally, here is a GIF to let you understand how this minimum incremental unit functionality works for the customer.

You can view in the following GIF that a customer is only able to select a quantity in multiples of 2. This is because the minimum increment quantity has been set as 2 while creating the rule.

Also, the customer cannot select a quantity less than 2 & greater than 8.
