When to develop custom page layout via Visual Studio, which parent content type must be chosen for content type?

From different articles i see both Page and Page Layout selected as base Content type.

You should use Page (or one inherited from it like Article page) as the base content type for the Content Type for the content to be displayed using the Page layout

The Page Layout content type is to be used when you add your Page layout to the master page gallary, so that's for the page layout itself not the corresponding content
