Metalloid is an element which show some properties of metals and some properties of non metals. Examples are, Silicon, germenium, etc.
An alloy is a homogenous mixture or metallic solid solution composed of two or more elements. Alloys usually have different properties from those of the component elements. Example, brass, bronze, steel, etc.
