Since "nějaký" was used, can't I use "some" in my answer: Is there some relationship between those two phenomena?

I've added "some". Note however that we only use "some" in a question when we expect a positive answer - it's basically a rhetorical question.

I disagree. I don't think the question is necessarily rhetorical. Example: "Is there some relationship between those two phenomena? No, they are not related; it's purely coincidental." Does anyone else have any thoughts about this?

I am at a loss to understand the reason for the rejection of 'Is there any connection between those two phenomena?' and should/would welcome an explanation.
