'gives one' is the definition.
'presents' can be an answer for 'gives' ('present' can be a synonym of 'give'). I am not sure about the 'one' bit.

'ten all crumpled to iron' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite see how this works, but
an anagram of 'ten' is 'ent' which is located in the answer.
'iron' could be 'press' (I've seen this before) and 'press' is found within the leftover letters.
No letters remain.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).

'about' acts as a link.
