In brief: Low impact exercises

Low impact exercises are generally a good idea when one is suffering from knee injuries.
Riding a stationary bike, elliptical machines, or swimming are exercises that will help strengthen the muscles around the knee without causing significant discomfort. Avoid squats or lunges.

In brief: Depends

Assuming that you mean a meniscus tear, usually low-impact exercise such as a stationary bike or eliptical machine can help improve your range-of-motion and strength.
