Nevím is given for "I do not know" but it's marked incorrect. What does that mean and what's the difference between nevím and neznám?

It is probably the difference between knowing facts or abstract ideas on the one hand, and knowing (being familiar with) people, etc. on the other. Cf. the German 'wissen' and 'kennen'.
