If an enterprise obtained the relevant information from an authority by inquiry

could I say, "the enterprise inquired the authority about the relevant information"?

You can say: The enterprise inquired about/into giving them the authority for the relevant information.

The enterprise inquired about the authority for the relevant information.


Neither of these has the meaning that you want.

Oh, and by the way, when I wrote "you" above, I meant Winkie, not Fandorin. Sorry for any confusion.

Never mind. I got it correctly.
