    Bhagona, we could give examples of sentences beginning 'In what may. . .', but as 5jj says, we need you to give us an example of one which you have often come across.

    I can't think of one beginning 'In what may called. . . .'

    Yes, that's a good example, although you won't see it very often:

    In what may be called a complete failure they noticed a great opportunity.
