1. during mitosis it doesn't matter, whether an organism has 3 or 50 chromosomes, whether is it diploid or haploid
2. alleles are different versions of one gene, i.e. located on single locus (physical part of chromosome)

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

You mean contraction of pupils? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miosis

How is that related to ploidy?
