    Jenny put the I Ching on the table among other elements

    Hello.

    Are the following sentences grammatically correct?

    "Jenny put the I Ching on the table among other elements to create the right atmosphere"

    Thanks.

    It cannot be grammatically correct without a full stop.

    I advise you to write 'the Book of Changes' instead of 'the I Ching', which may be confusing to non-Chinese people.

    We know it as The I Ching​ here in the States.

    I would say that more Brits would know the term "I Ching" than know "The Book of Changes". I had no idea they were the same thing.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    'I Ching' represents two characters which mean 'The Book of Changes'.

    Other elements confuses me more than I Ching. I don't know what these are other elements of- I know the name I Ching, but little more than that.
