Version control is used to track the application version( for example: if the application is build for the first time then it would be 1 or so. In future if some one make any modification on the application then it would change according to the modification made 1.1,1.2, so on) so that we can track the new application and also it keeps track of the person, what time it is been modified.

Version control is the subset of Configuration management. All the modification, deletion or addition to the same kind of code or system or application are recorded. The other way if a functionality is working on a certain version and failed in another version then all the information are noted down. In future it can helpful in tracking the records.

Each Application has many versions (i.e. releases).
So it becomes very important to keep track of all the versions of the application which helps us to trace changes occurred in individual version.
This is Version Control i.e. record of each version is kept and controlled.
