A: Similar – means that two or more things or people are not identical (not exactly the same), but are almost the same

”My sister and I look similar, but she is taller than me.”

A: "Alike" (adjective) means "the same" when "same" is a noun.

Ex: The two cars are not the same. - The two cars are not alike.

"Alike" can be slightly different because it has the meaning of "similar" more so than "the same."
