Since you can't end the sentence with à qui (etc), how would you express something like this? "Yes, that's the one I was thinking of" / "That's the one I was thinking about"

Do you basically have to make it more like "Yes, that's the one of which I was thinking"? Having trouble figuring out how to express it in French.

Bonjour TJ,

Yes, you have to reword it: C'est celui auquel je pensais.

(or celle à laquelle)

Thank you!
