There are some words and I have to rearrange these for making a sentence. those words are " me, let, you, for, read, one". I arranged them like " you let me one for read" and the other sentence is " let me read one for you". I want to know that which sentence is correct?

In this case, “let me read one for you” is the correct sentence because it is the only grammatically correct and sensible sentence that can result from a combination of these words. It means to allow the speaker (“me”) read something for “you;” in this case, “I” am telling (in a non-forceful way) “you” that I will read something for you.

But I am curious to know your thought process behind your first example sentence. What do you think it means? Why do you think it’s a viable sentence?

"Let me read one, for you."

    And why you think a comma is necessary.
