“怎么会有这样的事情?” In everyday street language (as if speaking with a friend): No way!! How? More formal: "How would there be such a thing?" Generally, you may say any exclamation, then ask your question, "How?" Example: That is awesome!! [Informal] How does it work? [Formal or informal] She knew calculus at age 3?! (“居然可以这样做!is implied and need not be said/verbalized) [Formal or informal] The following is okay to say in any occasion. “怎么会有这样的念头?” What?? [Immediately followed by] Why? “居然可以这样做! How did this happen?
