Best answer
Alkalis are those bases that can dissolve in water while those which don't dissolve in water are not alkali. That is all bases are not alkaline except those that can dissolve in water.

Therefore, all alkalis are bases because they will all neutralize acids, but not all bases are alkalis because not all bases will dissolve in water.
