This question already has an answer here:

I'm having a real hard time getting the paredit slurp key to work. I know it is bound to C-), and by describing the paredit-slurp-forward-sexp it confirms that.

When I fire up M-x describe-key and try to type C-) (that is, press and hold control, press shift, and press )) the describer only registers the ) part and trys to execute paredit-close-round.

I know slurp works because if I M-x paredit-slurp-forward-sexp it works fine.

Am I not using this hotkey right? It seems like it should be working fine.
