Following a statement of the well-known Erdo{double acute}s-Turán conjecture, Erdo{double acute}s mentioned the following even stronger conjecture: if the n-th term an of a sequence A of positive integers is bounded by αn2, for some positive real constant α, then the number of representations of n as a sum of two terms from A is an unbounded function of n. Here we show that if an differs from αn2 (or from a quadratic polynomial with rational coefficients q(n)) by at most o(√log n), then the number of representations function is indeed unbounded.
