You have a problem with the MARS library.

li $v0,1 Print integer
mov $a0,$s0 a0 is integer
syscall <--- MISSING

li $v0,10
syscall #exit

I downloaded the PCSPIM simulator and it doesn't like the system calls or the .txt label. I typically use a real MIPS processor, with real tools. Were you instructed to use this simulator, and where did the sample program or the control syntax of your sample program come from? I see no reference to those declarations in PCPSIM's help file!
And no MARS library reference.

Okay, had to get away from it, download and read the Appendix A document, twiddle and retry. It ran. Answer -4.
I also tabbed the text as normally it isn't suppose to be in column 1 but not sure if that was it or not!
