What's the difference between proteoglycans and cartilage?

Isn't cartilage made from proteoglycans? :?

I can't understand why then I'd be asked to compare their functions.

Proteoglycan is a chemical substance.... It is indeed found in high concentration in cartilages...
It's like comparing water to the ocean
