Number of DNA Replications in Mitosis

How many DNA replications are there in mitosis?

None.

No DNA replication occurs during mitosis. Strictly speaking, the replication and synthesis of new DNA that occurs during the S phase of interphase occurs prior to mitosis. This means that by the time a cell enters mitosis, it already has a duplicate of its DNA ready to be divided between the 2 daughter cells it produces.
