Read up on the test for reducing sugars - this would be positive for any reducing sugar present - think about how you could exclude other reducing sugars e.g. sucrose (made of glucose + fructose), and then conclude whether glucose specifically was present in your urine sample.
You will need to do some basic research and then build on it.
