Fret the nine, bend it up until it sound the same note as eleven and then release back to nine.

When you bend a note, it's like moving up the fretboard to a different note. What that tab says its to bend fret 9 up so it sounds like fret 11 then bring it back down

------9b11r9-------9b10r9. how do i make it sound like a 10 with out it sounding like 11?

Just don't bend it so far: bend it until it sounds the same note as the 10.

You would bend the string a little less that time.
