I came across a sentence that began with "It was used a .." and was wondering whether it is grammatically correct.
Specifically, the sentence was: In this case study it was used a part of the database iris available in the R package datasets. (as in 'a part of database was used')
I found some (very few) similar examples on the internet, but am not convinced, they all seem to be missing 'used as a'. The sentence I'm asking about looks wrong to me.
