1As little time as possible in both. Spend the time you have seeing the wonderful scenery in the South Island. A look though some of the previous threads will give you some ideas of the highlights and possible itineraries.
While you're in Auckland, think about heading out to Waiheke, Tiritiri Matangi or up to Leigh/Goat Island. Check out Auckland War Memorial Museum, Auckland Art Gallery, Devonport - including a walk up North Head, have fish n chips on one of the city beaches, and take in a rugby game.

3In my two weeks course time, i think i'll be able to visit some of the interesting place
Around north island (rotorua and waitomo caves) that's why i also want to visit
South island and not stick in the north island.
When i look around the internet i found some coach tours which covers some of south island main icon
(mt. Cook and milford sound) in only 4 days. do you think these kind of tours worth it because i am
Travelling alone and all these tours seems put a high price to lone travellers.
Anyway, thanks for your advice.
