There are two main functions for polysaccharides in living things. Discuss these two functions, and how the structures of polysaccharide molecules support these functions. Now I know that all polysaccharides are made up of the same monomer, glucose. Is this question essentially asking me the use of glucose throughout different organisms?

"Now I know that all polysaccharides are made up of the same monomer" this isn't true. One of the functions is energy storage as glycogen, look here https://www.khanacademy.org/test-prep/mcat/physical-sciences-practice/physical-sciences-practice-tut/e/the-structure-and-function-of-glycogen- The other is for structural support, e.g. cellulose in plants https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cellulose These are glucose polymers, but there are others, like chitin, that arent glucose polymers.

Thank you for your reply, @aaronq . I guess I should do a bit more research, since I'm a bit confused with this question. But I'll run through that top link, and scan through some other information. I'm not too keen when it comes to biology.
