    So, penser vs reflechir rears its head.

    However, are we really being given enough context to suggest that only reflechir works with this sentence? I don't think so, but I'm happy to be corrected.

    "Ma soeur pensait beaucoup trop à cela " is rejected. ???

    Can 'y' be used here instead of 'à cela'? 'Ma sœur y réfléchissait trop'?

    Just when I think I have it sussed, that réfléchir is for general thinking and penser is for thinking about something, this pops up to correct me. I now have no idea what the difference is.

    While I have no idea either, it is clear that penser should also be accepted here. I assume that pensait will be added as a correct answer once enough people report it, but I've been wrong before!
