Allot - to give someone part of an amount of something that is available, or to decide that something will be used for a specific purpose. "How many students finished the test in the alloted time?" P.S.For me "alloted" sounds similar to "limited in something" Allocate - to officially give something to someone, or to decide that something can be used for a specific purpose. " No agreement was reached on how much money should be allocated." P.S. As for me, "to allocate" is close to "to give" Distribute - to spread something over an area. "The two men were convicted of distributing anti-government leaflets. " P.S. "to distribute" has something from "to spread ".
