Hi Wilmar, 

Which writing exercise are you talking about?

Generally, there are not synonyms.

The adverb 'alors' is more 'so' whereas 'puis' ( or ensuite) is 'then' but without context it is difficult to be more precise.

Bonne Continuation !

You can think of alors as "so" and puis as "then". Puis is used to introduce a temporal sequence whereas alors is used in a causal sequence.
