    Answer: Neither Event 1 nor Event 2

    Explanation:

    Let’s begin by explaining when a total solar eclipse occurs:

    A total solar eclipse occurs when “the Moon hides the Sun” (as seen from Earth).  

    So, in order to make this situation posible, the Sun, Moon, and Earth must be aligned in the plane of the ecliptic; and Moon must be in the New Moon phase.  When this happens, the Moon completely covers the solar disk.

    Hence, according to his explanation, Neither Event 1 nor Event 2 describe a Total Solar Eclipse, since Event 1 is not related to a solar eclipse and Event 2 describes an annular solar eclipse on Earth.
