Why isn't it 'la fille, à laquelle je pensé?' Instead of just laquelle?

This question relates to:
French lesson "À + qui, auquel, à laquelle = to whom, what, which (relative pronouns)"

It is "La fille, à laquelle je pense, est belle." What was your question again? -- Chris.

You can say both : "la fille à qui je pense" or "la fille à laquelle je pense".

You cannot say "la fille laquelle je pense" because you need the à as the verb is penser à quelqu'un.

Hope this answers your question Heyes...
