For slow languages like JAVA time contrained is 2x the given time, so for you time constraint is 2 sec for that question.

Your solution might be written in Python/Java etc. These languages have specific relaxed time limits based on the language itself. Read more about it here

I think a similar question was asked today itself. The time limit of 1s is for languages like C++. Languages which are slower than it are given appropriate time compensation.
