How to you phrase this using the formal Vd please? It would seem logical that if you do not know someone well then you would use the polite form. I put "No se conozco bien" but it was wrong.

That is what I have been thinking, It should be formal when you don't know somebody well. No le conozco bien.

With usted... You say... No le conozco bien

But you can also say... No lo conozco bien... Talking to a man. No la conozco bien... Talking to a woman

Can I also put "No lo conozco bien a usted." to distinguish between "you" and "him"?

usted is necessary? I wrote No le conozco bien, and marked wrong. I know I can not say no te conozco bien (this this was the correct solution) because obviously " I " am not talking to a person who I am familiar indicated by the original sentence.

I wrote "no usted conozco bien" and was marked wrong. If I don't know the person well, would I not use "usted?"

I think you would need to write "Yo no la conozco bien a usted" or "Yo no lo conozco bien a usted". Would someone please correct me if I am wrong?
