Tell me all ....... you know about this boy 

Hello, Ahmed,

Use "that".

All means everything and it should be only used with the structure "all + that"

  • Tell me all that you know about this boy.
  • Tell me all what you know about this boy.

You can also say:

  • Tell me what you know about this boy. 
  • Tell me whatever you know about this boy.

Hello, Ahmed55,

Again, please do not leave it to readers to infer your question from the title of your thread. You should actually ask the question you are trying to ask.

I agree with Hussein's response. In addition to the various options he has given, you could use "everything" instead of "all," and then "that" would be optional:

  • Tell me everything that you know about this boy.
  • Tell me everything you know about this boy.

Tell me all ....... you know about this boy 

Ahmed,

I agree with both Hussein and David.  I would like to point out that if we omit the word "all", both "what" and "that" make sense, but they would mean different things.

8: Tell me what you know about this boy.

This conveys the same meaning as the examples David and Hussein presented, which is a request for detailed information about the boy.

9: Tell me that you know about this boy.

This is merely a request that you acknowledge that you are aware that there is such a boy.
