According to the modern atomic theory what can scientists not know about an electron?
Atomic theory does not really refer to electrons---indeed, when it was first created they did not even know electrons existed, and the modern reinterpretation of its postulates (in light of our knowledge of subatomic particles, fission, fusion, and isotopes) does not talk specifically about electrons either. Now based on your question, I presume that what you are looking for is that we cannot know both the position and momentum of an electron simultaneously. This is the application of Heisenburg's uncertainty principle to electrons. It is the reason why we talk about the location of electrons in terms of probabilities of finding them somewhere within the region of space defined by orbitals.

How is the modern atomic model different from Bohrs model?
The modern model of the atom has electrons in waves or clouds that surround the nucleus rather than just electrons as particles that orbit the nucleus. These models represent the possibilities of where the electrons could be at any particular time. In the wave model, where the amplitude is the largest, the electrons are more likely to be in that position.
What are the positions of the electrons in Bohr's model of the atom in comparison to their positions according to the modern atomic theory?
The Bohr atom imagined that electrons orbit the nucleus in much the same way that planets orbit the sun. The modern atomic model has electrons in the form of a cloud that surrounds the nucleus without actually moving in orbit around it. Moving electrons would have to emit photons, lose energy, and spiral into the nucleus, thus destroying the atom. They don't really orbit.
