Use of "lo"





Can someone help with some advice please?


I keep seeing “lo” in Italian sentences, where it is not used in English. I would like to know if:


  1. 1. “Lo” is necessary 
  2. 2. If we only use “lo” with specific verbs
  3. 3. If there are any rules about when to use “lo”


I have some examples:


Non lo so - I don't know (previous fact). In English we don't need to say ‘it’.


Lo sai una cosa - Do you know something. Again, in English we leave out “it”


Non me lo ricordo - I don't remember (previous fact)


Karen non lo vuoi dire - Karen doesn't want to say (her age)
