Ok, you need commas in here.

A = {{.1,.2,.3,.4,.5},
{.1,.2,.3,.4,.6},
{.1,.2,.3,.5,.7},
{.1,.2,.5,.6,.8} }

Post your code exactly, so that people can paste it into Mathematica and
have it work.

Needs a closing bracket. (See comment above.)

ListPlot3D[A, AxesLabel->{"Years", "Ratings", "rates"}]

This is really all one question. All it requires is setting up the ticks
that you want for each axis. Here's one way to do it.

A = {{.1, .2, .3, .4, .5} , {.1, .2, .3, .4, .6} , {.1, .2, .3, .5, .7},
{.1, .2, .5, .6, .8}};
ticks1 = {{1, "5"}, {2, "10"}, {3, "15"}, {4, "20"}};
ticks2 = {{1, "A"}, {2, "B"}, {3, "C"}, {4, "D"}};
ticks3 = {0, {.2, "20%"}, {.4, "40%"}, {.6, "60%"}, {.8, "80%"}};
ListPlot3D[A, AxesLabel -> {"Years",
"Ratings", "rates"}, Ticks -> {ticks1, ticks2, ticks3}]
