Private methods overridden?

I have two different examples which indicate that it is legal to override a private method with one of less restrictions, of course the other statement indicates that this is illegal.
Case 1:

Case 2:
"A subclass of an object cannot access private variables or private methods of its own superclass." "Private methods of superclass not inherited by subclass or overridden by subclass." "The method in the subclass only shares the same name as the super method therefore the two methods have no relationship"
Again I do thank you for your help in advance.
