Depends on what you mean by common functions.

If they are helper functions you can group them in a singleton utility class.

Else as per the object oriented programming guidelines you add associated functions to an object.

besides what @a_b has mentioned, if the methods are too similar, you can also refactor and combine then into one. If the difference is minor only, an if condition can be added for the same

Perhaps some context would help.  Do you have some methods (functions) in mind?

Does the class containing these methods have any state?

If not, then create a singleton test utility class and write those methods.
If yes, then you need to follow the OOPs concepts.
