Calculation:
Since, plane of $\mathrm{△}{A}^{\prime }{B}^{\prime }{C}^{\prime }$ is similar to the plane of $\mathrm{△}ABC$
Since, ABCD is a parallelogram.
$\mathrm{\angle }B=\mathrm{\angle }V\therefore$(Common)
$\mathrm{\angle }VAB=\mathrm{\angle }V{A}^{\prime }{B}^{\prime }\therefore$(Corresponding angle in two similar plane)
Therefore by AA similarity, $\mathrm{△}VAB\sim \mathrm{△}V{A}^{\prime }{B}^{\prime }$
Ratio of corresponding sides in two similar triangles is equal.
$\frac{VA}{V{A}^{\prime }}=\frac{VC}{V{C}^{\prime }}$
$\frac{V{A}^{\prime }+{\mathrm{\forall }}^{\prime }}{V{A}^{\prime }}=\frac{VC}{V{C}^{\prime }}$
$\frac{15+20}{15}=\frac{VC}{18}$
$VC=\frac{18×35}{15}$
VC=42
