Smart?

Situation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.

One day, a second grade math teacher was helping her students write large numbers. She paid a lot of a attention to her new student, James. It was James' first day at his new school, and, being as shy as he was, he had barely spoken the whole day. The teacher asked him to write 'one thousand'. The boy wrote 1,000. The teacher asked him to write one million. The boy wrote 1,000,000. Finally, the teacher asked him to write one billion. The boy wrote 1,000,000,000,000. His answer was correct. Why?
