No way of telling.

It's just as much about the build as it is about the material and the target weight.

For the same weight and build quality, the aluminium frame will be stronger, as it can have more material in it.

If build quality is the same, and you require the aluminium frame to be lighter, then the chrome moly frame may be stronger.

If you compare a poorly built frame to a well built frame, the poorly built frame will be weaker, regardless of material.

It's simply a bicycle frame made out of two or more metals mixed together. Alloy is often used for metals mainly consisting of aluminium, but with a dash of other metals thrown in the mix.

Alloy simply means a mix of metals. Common alloys would be Cr-Mo, (Chrome- Molybdenum) for steel frames, and various aluminium (Al-Cu, Al-Mg...) alloys.
