    Let's see...

    Page Rank = Lowest is 0 and Highest is 10
    Alexa Rank = Lowest is Millions and the Highest is 1

    You see the two metrics have a different scale.

    Example:

    Google has a pagerank of 9 and it has a Alexa rank of 1 (in the US)

    There are two different thing
    Those site drive traffic through email marketing, PPC advertising without any link building activities, the site's alexa ranking will be good but low PR. For those site (especially new site) which the owner mainly focus on link building but not the traffic, then the site will have good PR but bad alexa ranking

    Exactly. Alexa and PR are not the only factors you can use to determine whether a website does have good SEO'd factors. You can make use of several tools online to check the visibility and superficial performance of a competitor or a website.

    These are two different thing like a flower smell and a perfume smell, but theme is same. This is also possible that you haven't any PR but have good Alexa rank. Alexa rank also can increase by software.
