“Enquiry” and “inquiry” are often applied interchangeably. There is a distinction, though, so if you desire to avoid errors in your work, make sure you know how to apply them!

Talking about inquiry with an “I”. It is used as a formal or an official investigation work. Let’s take an example:

He came here to inquire about his Lost car. (By which we mean that he came here to know the details about his lost car)
 Now let’s talk about the word “enquire . Enquire means when we want to know something in general. 
 For instance:

  • She enquired about her health.

So I think you are now pretty clear about the difference between inquire and enquire.
