Section GLOBA says:

section 3.2, page 4:

int       num-prompts

section 3.4, page 6:

int       num-responses

section 3.4.4

page 7:
S:   int       1
...
C:   int       1

page 8:

S:   int       1
...
C:   int       1
...
S:   int       2
...
C:   int       2
...
S:   int       0

page 9:

S:   int       0

It should say:

section 3.2, page 4:

uint32       num-prompts

section 3.4, page 6:

uint32       num-responses

section 3.4.4

page 7:
S:   uint32       1
...
C:   uint32       1

page 8:

S:   uint32       1
...
C:   uint32       1
...
S:   uint32       2
...
C:   uint32       2
...
S:   uint32       0

page 9:

S:   uint32       0

Notes:

The type "int" is not present between the list of types present in the RFC 4251, section 5 ( "Data Type Representations Used in the SSH Protocols" ) . Alone it's confusing and meaningless.
