Inquiry involves, first, being struck by a question. If the answer is to be found by means of some familiar routine, you simply do what is needed (look up the number in the phone book, or whatever). If the answer is not so easily found, however, the next step is to make a conjecture which, if true, would answer the question at issue; figure out its consequences; check out how well those consequences stand up to any evidence you already have and any further evidence you can lay your hands on; and then use your judgment whether to stick with your conjecture, modify it, abandon it and start again -- or suspend judgment until more evidence comes along.
