What’s the difference between a secret phrase and a private key?

Answer with a syllogism :
├ A private key is used to spend the funds you hold.
├ Your wallet derives your private key from your secret phrase.
├ A secret phrase is a way to derive your private key.
NB: You will soon be able to extract the private key from your XDEFI Wallet via a special feature.
