comment How to calculate the expected value of a function of a standard brownian motion (Wiener process)
If the OP is not comfortable with using $\cos x = \Re \{ e^{i x} \} $, let $\cos x = \frac{e^{i x} + e^{-i x}}{2}$ and proceed from there.

comment Time-zero price of two specific contingent claims
@user8: i see, but then I think your answer is wrong, since $\frac{V_0}{B_0} = \mathbb{E}^Q \left[ \frac{V_T}{B_T} \middle\vert \mathcal{F}_0\right] = \mathbb{E}^Q \left[ \frac{\int_0^T S_u \; du}{B_T} \middle\vert \mathcal{F}_0\right]$. In other words, the factor $e^{r u}$ appears in the integrand; it's not canceled out by $B_T = e^{r T}$.

@user8: Although your answer agrees with mine if we take the limit of $r \rightarrow 0$ in my expression, why are you assuming that $r=0$?

comment Time-zero price of two specific contingent claims
I think your expression for $S_t =S_0 e^{\sigma W^Q_t-\frac{1}{2}\sigma^2t}$ is wrong. Under the risk-neutral measure $Q$, $S_t= S_0 e^{(r-\sigma^2/2)t + \sigma W_t}$.

comment Deterministic interpretation of stochastic differential equation
You missed the important random variable $\phi$ when proceeding from the 2nd-last equation to the last equation, which makes the last equation not deterministic.
