Which statement is wrong?

1. Adding the same amount of heat to two
different objects will produce the same increase in temperature.
2. When the same amount of heat produces
different changes in temperature in two substances of the same mass, we say that they have different specific heat capacities.
3. Temperature measures the average kinetic energy of random motion, but not other kinds of energy.
4. Each substance has its own characteristic specific heat capacity.
5. Different substances have different thermal properties due to differences in the way energy is stored internally in the substances.
