For math mode, I'd recommend using \overset and the symbols from the pifont package.

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{pifont}

\begin{document}

$\overset{\text{\ding{51}}}{A}$
$\overset{\text{\ding{55}}}{B}$

\end{document}

enter image description here

Use stackengine (I've not searched for the symbols, you'll find them on your own):

stacked

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{stackengine}

\begin{document}
\stackon{A}{cm}
\stackon{B}{x}
\end{document}

  • Thanks @TeXnician. But it is showing error stackengine.sty not found. – Seeker Oct 11 '17 at 7:08
  • @Seeker Which TeX distro are you using (TeX Live, MikTeX, ...)? Try using its package manager. – TeXnician Oct 11 '17 at 7:13

By simple, can use \mathop and \limits commands, example shown below:

\documentclass{book}

\begin{document}

$\mathop{\mathrm{A}}\limits^\surd$\quad
$\mathop{\mathrm{B}}\limits^\times$
\end{document}
