Is there space for 5 words in MIPS?

Yes, it does make space for 5 words. Consult your assembler’s manual, this is for gas. – Jester Oct 13 '15 at 14:55 .space Len directive instructs the assembler to reserve Len bytes. As every word has 4 bytes, when Len is 20 you are instructing the assembler to reserve 5 words. then other_data will be 20 bytes after array address.
