Let us compare the fractions by making the denominators of all the fractions the same.

Therefore, book read by Balakrishnan is, $\dfrac{1}{2} = \dfrac{{1{\text{x3}}}}{{2{\text{x}}3}} = \dfrac{3}{6}$th of the total.

Book read by Angela is $\dfrac{5}{6}$th of the total.

And portion read by Subhalakshmi is $\dfrac{2}{3} = \dfrac{{2{\text{x2}}}}{{3{\text{x2}}}} = \dfrac{4}{6}$th of the total.

Now arranging the fractions in decreasing order we get, $\dfrac{5}{6} > \dfrac{4}{6} > \dfrac{3}{6}$

Therefore, the order from the one who read the book most to the least is:

Then compare the numerators. The greater the value of the numerator is, the greater is the value of the fraction.
