I'm not sure if my wording is correct, but the general idea is:

If 1 day equals a 1000 years, then how long (in days or months) would 2 seconds (2 seconds of a day) be?

hint: how many seconds are there in a day?

just convert in the usual way:

$\displaystyle \frac {1000 \text{ years}}{1 \text{ day}} \times \frac {1 \text{day}}{ ?\text{ seconds}} = \cdots$

1 day=1000 years
24 hours=1000 years
24x60 minutes=1000 years
24x60x60 seconds=1000 years
1 second=1000/(24x60x60) years
therfor
2 second=(1000x2)/(24x60x60)
=.02315(approx) years
from my side converting the solution into days or month without any assumption is not possible as this is a hypothetical question.
