If you're trying to open them to let the water flow again you use a screwdriver where I have marked in Pink.
The screw head type in the middle opens and closes the valve allowing the water in and out, the screw head should be pointing straight up. Just use a screw driver to move the screw head.

Updated my question above. Please help again
you need 2 spanners. one on each of the top two hexagonal fittings. hold the bottom one still and turn the top one to unscrew.

Have some rags/old towel wrapped around the bottom of the pipes because water will leak.

You've changed your post again - what are you now wanting to do? the whole length of flexy and the fittings (what your latest pic shows you holding) are a single item - they dont come apart any further

You are right. I am a novice and was trying to fix a leak. Thanks to all of you I managed to unscrew the valves and detect the leak. You are right they come fitted and hence have now ordered a new tap. To be honest advise from you and few others helped me save £75 just call out charges to plumber. That’s really great thanks to all..

It worked just like you guided..thanks a ton
This is why when making any alterations to our property we tend to save components description numbers, brand, instructions etc & laminate them then store them in a taped folder in an access door for the cistern (for instance).

Saves divvng around, folk have some details they can chase up rather than bad guesses & pleas for help on the internet that then go over multiple threads.

Hope you bought some PTFE tape for firm "just in case" seating of the new & likely unnecessary tap.
Now take what you have learnt & teach someone else..
Same as in he kitchen I have pushfit braided connectors, again a storage container nearby with the removal tool etc, ..then they are there ready for use in future.
