In entirety, an entirety
Naught but a void otherwise
Take bits from me, ye shall find:
A tool, an inquiry, a tragedy

What am I?

You are:

A WHOLE

In entirety, an entirety

The word "Whole" in its full form means... well, a full form.

Naught but a void otherwise

But it also sounds like the word "hole", which is an empty space.

Take bits from me, ye shall find: A tool, an inquiry, a tragedy

By choosing certain letters from the word, we get "HOE", a farming tool, "WHO", a question, and "WOE", a sad thing indeed!

    $\begingroup$ @VotBear: the difficulty of riddles is very subjective: if you'd left it a little later you might get more people attempting it! I just happened to "see" the answer but some others may not. $\endgroup$
