(This is a continuation of Problem 66 from the 2014 Bertinoro Workshop on Sublinear Algorithms.)

For constant $\varepsilon>0$, it is known that the sample complexity of equivalence testing, in the conditional oracle model where the algorithm gets to condition the samples it receives on arbitrary subsets of the domain $[n]$, is $\Omega(\sqrt{\log\log n})$ and $O({\log\log n})$ [AcharyaCK-14,FalahatgarJOPS-15].

What is the exact dependence on the domain size of the sample complexity of equivalence testing in the conditional oracle model?
