So I did end up using moment generating function. And I think the answer to (c) is s = \ln{\frac{\alpha}{1-\alpha}}, using calculus.

But now I'm stuck at (d).

Directly substituting \alpha = \mathbb{E}(u) + \epsilon is probably wrong? Because e^{s}U(s) can be simplified to the point where no logarithm appears (unless I made a really big mistake).
