For cellulose, fructose, to store into a insoluble starch solution so it doesnt effect the water concentration (another word cant think of it atm sorry) and they use it for energy x

They use it for many reasons: respiration,storing starch,making cell walls,storing in seeds and making proteins.

An obvious simple reason: respiration.

Plants use some of glucose for respiration, this releases energy so they can covert the rest of glucose in to other useful substances.

Plants create glucose through Photosynthesis: CARBON DIOXIDE + WATER --> GLUCOSE + OXYGEN.

Every living organism needs to respire. The equation for  respiration is: GLUCOSE + OXYGEN --> CARBON DIOXIDE + WATER (+ ENERGY).
