It is 1000 because milli stands for 1/1000 (one-thousandth).

so therefore:

1 second = 1000 milliseconds.

Assuming you mean "millisecond" the answer is 1000 (one thousand) as the prefix "milli" means one thousandth.

1000 milliseconds. the SI prefix milli means 1 thousandth, therefore if a millisecond is a thousandth of a second, then 1000 milliseconds have to combine to make a second. The prefix is familiar, and is commonly used as millilitre, milligram and millimetre, each meaning the same, 1/1000
