An RAC ticket gets you on the train (A WL ticket doesn’t) and in your chosen class, but there’s a chance you could end up with just a seat. (very unlikely if you book early)
A berth is split into 2 seats for 2 RAC ticket holders, if there’s any last minute cancellations, or if any quota allocations remain unsold, or if any confirmed ticket holders are given a free upgrade (more later), an RAC ticket holder is given the empty berth, the other RAC ticket holder can then convert the 2 seats into a berth.

RAC means Reservation Against Cancellation. Passengers with RAC tickets can travel in the train (Wait listed passengers cannot travel) and has to share berth with anothr passenger, generally in Side Lower Berth. If berth are vacant during travel, he is entitled to have full berth according to seniority in his coach.
No need of paying extra for berth.
