In the very first exercise, which involves division in to syllables, the answer key shows eius divided as ei-us.

Why not e-ius? Isn't i consonantal here?

The question is meaningless unless you give a specific word with that sequence of letters.

Wiktionary states: /ˈej.jus/ heh heh. So it sounds like ei-ius? This is Latin for "is", right? For the suffix -eius, it seems /ˈeː.i.us/ is correct.
