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.
