    So what's the problem? What have you tried so far? Paste your validation rule and then, I can help you modify it to meet the requirement. May 4, 2017 at 4:35

Here is sudo code for your validation rule:

     Requested_Delivery_Date__c <  TODAY() + 10 ,
          RecordTypeID = 'ID OF Demonstration',   
          RecordTypeID = 'ID OF Demonstration',   

If this formula /rule return true then show error message that Requested Delivery Date must be latter than today + 10 when record type is Demonstration OR Evaluation.
