    I believe it's 아니요.

    괜찮아요? -- 아니요.

    저녁 먹었어요? -- 아니요, 저녁을 안먹었어요.
    Did you eat dinner? -- No, I didn't eat dinner.

    학생이에요? -- 아니요, 학생이 아니에요.
    Are you a student? -- No, I am not a student.


    Just to add to what Kristen said, 아니 is the informal version of 아니요, which are both how you would say no :)
