Why does word order matter here? Isn't Он не знает ничего the same thing? This more closely follows the direct translation of each word which is hinted.

"Он не знает ничего" is also a correct translation. Added it.

What about "Он знает ничего нет"?

Doesn't ничего mean 'nothing' ? Any reason why I can't use всё ?
