Bathroom sink faucet, what am I missing?

I know this is probably dumb question but I am trying to learn. I bought a new faucet for bathroom sink and it has single hole which is what I wanted for my above counter bowl sink. I am attaching a photo of it. But taking out the old one and it has two hoses on it, one goes to hot and one to cold and those go to my 2 shut off valves, so this new one only has one hose, how do I hook it to hot and cold? thanks

Looks like a cold or hot water only faucet... Simple on/off lever..

You don't, take it back and get the proper faucet with provisions for hot and cold.

Thank Lawrosa, I had no idea there could be a faucet with only hot or cold, I cannot imagine why there would be but I learned something. Thanks again!

Some commercial washrooms do not have hot and cold water but only warm water for washing your hands. This saves on piping costs as well as only requiring heating the "hot" water to about 105 degrees.
