connaitre v savoir

Elles ne connaitront jamais mon secret is the given answer. Why will savoir in the future not do? Various dictionaries suggest they are equivalent for this kind of statement.

Bonjour Chris, 

Connaître [qch] = to know something [noun or abstract thing]

Savoir [+ clause or + infinitve] = to know [that ... /how to ...]

In the case of 'knowing a secret', 'connaître' is the right choise.

Here is a link to a lesson which you might find useful:

connaitre-vs-savoir

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
