    The book may be under the desk.(where)

    Make a question:
    .................................................. ............?
    The book may be under the desk.
    My answer:
    where is the book?
    where,do you think, is the book?
    But can we say:
    Where may the book be?
    Because I didn't like it.

    Re: The book may be under the desk.(where)

    Where might the book be? would be more natural to me, though may and might have largely merged in recent decades.

    Your original answer is probably the best.
    I am not a teacher.
