Default Please help in hydatidiform mole.

Ive learned that a complete h-mole has a higher incidence of a lutein cyst than a partial mole. (this is because of the higher hCG perhaps?)

so.. my assumption is that..

incomplete -> cytotrophoblast
complete -> cytotrophoblast + syncytiotrophoblast

(since syncytiotrophoblast is where hCG is secreted from)

is this assumption correct??

and if this is the case.. is there a reason why ?? why a incomplete h-mole is this way? the only difference i know of is that

partial -> 1egg + 2sperms -> triploid
complete -> 2sperms -> diploid

thank you for your time
