    Starting in N I, it passes~, continues ~, crosses ~, and leaping ~, ends in Mexico.

    Hi!

    I found a sentence unfamiliar to me in the trial exam of Korean scholastic Aptitude Test.

    A great belt of desert stretches nearly lhalfway around the world. Starting in North India, it passes west through Pakistan and Afghanistan, continues through the Near East, crosses Africa as the Sahara, and leaping the Atlantic, ends in Mexico and the Southwest United States.

    In my opinion, it is better to be changed like this. Am I wrong?

    I appreciate your help in advance.

    I am pretty sure I already asked you to stop using ^^ and you thanked me for my advice. Please remove these pointless marks from all your posts.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    The original is OK, though.
