To demonstrate is to show something. Demonstrative pronouns show or point.
This and that refer to singular objects. These and those refer to plural objects. This and these refer to objects close to the speaker. That and those refer to objects far from the speaker.
It is never correct to combine this and here or those and there. Here and there are understood in the pronouns.
