If your method overrides one of its superclass's methods, you can invoke the overridden method through the use of the keyword super.

Q1) In below example why we are able use super keyword to invoke super class version of overloaded method ?

Yes, but you can use that keyword to call any accessible method in the super class, despite it was overridden or not.
